Welcome to the latest edition of the AWAVA Weekly Round-Up. This week we have highlighted a number of ways to get involved in the effort to prevent and eliminate violence against women. From attending conferences, trainings, and events, to filling out surveys, there are a huge variety of ways that you can support the movement to address gender-based violence. But the key idea that all of these opportunities share is that it is the responsibility of every individual to take action to make our communities safe for all women and girls.
