Taking action against ongoing assaults on women, specifically in India

This is a call to all who would be interested in forming a task force addressing the ongoing assault on women specifically in the region of India. There are some members here passionate about taking effective action to lift voices and stop this violence. If you are interested in exploring this within a group here on the WP site, please answer below.

There is always hope, even in the bleakest of moments. Let us hope together.

YES.

Our organization is in communication with an organization in Mumbai which rescues girls and women from brothels, bringing them to a safe house for therapy, and other care and rehab.
It is a goal of ours to travel to meet with the leader of this group in Mumbai, and to bring these beautiful women's stories back home to be shared.
I am interested in being involved in a WP forum on the topic of the assault on women in India and beyond.

We need to brainstorm ideas for what can be done on a larger scale to stop the rapes occurring in India. There is another member, William, who is wanting to take major action. We could start an awareness campaign, action step campaign, join with organizations currently working in that area.... any other ideas anyone may have. We need to get the word out that we are doing this.

Thanks all!

What can I do?

I'm willing to do what I can. I have art skills and can sell my art if we had a craft show or something to raise money. Other than that I can help get the word out to others. I am on most of the social networks.
Let me know..

I look forward to what this can do to help stop the abuse on females- especially India- Congos- all the places like this.

Thanks
