UNIFEM / Kidman: Say NO to Violence Against Women

Nicole Kidman, goodwill ambassador for the United Nations Development Fund for Women (UNIFEM) is urging people to join in signing a petition “Say NO to Violence Against Women.” I wanted to spotlight this because it’s a good cause, and also because I know several regular readers are involved in anti-domestic violence work in their own communities, and as volunteers for the RAINN online hotline.

The Say NO initiative continues until November 25, 2008, the internationally recognized day to eliminate violence against women, when UNIFEM will hand over the signatures to UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon in support of his global campaign. Thanks to Geri at Good News Network for alerting me to this campaign.

Today’s mitzvah: Read more about UNIFEM’s Trust Fund to End Violence Against Women, and consider signing the peition and/or making a contribution.
