People of faith speaking out!

We Will Speak Out South Africa is a coalition of more than 200 individuals, organisations and church groups – including faith leaders and survivors of Sexual and Gender Based Violence (SGBV) – who work together to eliminate sexual and gender-based violence in the faith sector and wider society, counter stigma against survivors and bring healing

We are part of an international coalition founded in 2011. 

Introducing the exciting joint Faith Action to End GBV 120-Day Communication Campaign: #faithingenderjustice!

Many thanks to the many members of the Faith Action to End GBV Collective that have helped shape this exciting campaign!

 It is a chance for all people with a vision for a world of gender justice and free of GBV to have our say, through memes, letters, press releases and opinion pieces, and radio interviews!

Do you have something to say to the Faith Community? Do you have faith in a gender-just and GBV-free future? The campaign runs from this week (International Men’s Day) through the 16 Days, Advent, Christmas and New year, Interfaith Day, and Valentine’s Day up until International Women’s Day 8th March.

An exciting aspect is the collecting of Open Letters to Myself, where each of us has a chance to add your voice – click here for the invitation:

Speak up, Speak Out, Be the change!
