WHY WE #SpeakUp Against Gender Based Violence
"#ISpeakUp because women deserve to feel safe in their communities."
"I speak up on behalf of my nieces and great nieces!"
"As a survivor, I don't want anyone to feel alone."
"I #SpeakUp about gender-based violence because the average life expectancy of a trans woman of color is only 35 years old, due to gender-and-race-base"
"I #speakup for those who are not yet ready to share their story"
"I #SpeakUp for Truth"
"Silence is not consent"
"I #SpeakUp because when you take responsibility people take action, and we need action!"
"#ISpeakUp to promote activism in my friends and family"
"I speak up for all women, regardless of identity. We all deserve to be treated with respect, and to feel safe."
"To inspire hope for survivors."
"I speak up because NO one deserves Violence! I speak up for my daughter, my granddaughter and ancestors who did not have a voice!"
"I speak up for all survivors with disabilities that may not be understood, believed, or supported. I ask for patience with all survivors who need a voice.'
