Need: Help End the Violence - Support the Violence Against Persons Prohibition Bill
The Violence Against Persons(Prohibition) Bill seeks to eliminate violence and punish perpetrators of gender-based violence in Nigeria. Several attempts to pass the bill into national law had failed in the past. The bill has been re-introduced to the Legislative bodies to ensure it becomes a law. My organisation, Alliances for Africa (www.alliancesforafrica.org) as a member of the LACVAW (Legislative Advocacy Coalition on Violence Against Women) is advocating for positive law that impacts on the lives of women and ends violence.
Kindly support this campaign by signing on and sharing the call to your colleagues, networks and friends. We need all the support we can get. Please support the passage of the bill into Law at: http://bit.ly/N4jihE
