Ways to get involved in the 16 Days of Activism Against Gender-Based Violence

Leave quickly

If you are in an emergency situation, please access 9-1-1 (in Canada), for emergency services in your area.

If you are outside of the 9-1-1 service area, please access available emergency services or call a crisis line in your area.

You may also want to consult the list of additional support services for people affected by gender-based violence.

The 16 Days of Activism Against Gender-Based Violence campaign challenges us to share all possible ways to join the conversation and be part of the solution to end gender-based violence.

We all have a role to play in calling out and speaking up against gender-based violence. Here are just some examples of the many ways to get involved between November 25 and December 10.
