Giving your voice to change

Hey guys!

You may have noticed a new badge on my blog page. I was told about the United Nations Development Fund for Women (UNIFEM) and their Say NO To Violence Against Women Campaign and couldn't wait to dive into help. There have been too many reports about violence against women and even our so called entertainment in movies showcase scenes where men punch women in some action and suspense flicks. Either way, it's a disturbing trend this is mirrored all too much in reality. This is the main reason I contributed a poem and artwork to the Nothing But Red Anthology whose proceeds to go the Equality Now! organization. Any organizations that try to end violence against women and give women who have suffered this better futures is awesome in my book.

UNIFEM has a goal of attaining 1 million signatures by November 24, to take a stand and build a community around this important cause. On November 25, UNIFEM and Goodwill Ambassador Nicole Kidman will present these signatures to the UN Secretary General.

We can do it, right? I already added my name so feel free to add yours and spread the word to your loved ones and friends.
