Recently, Responsible Men became an Awareness-Raising Partner with the Pixel Project. I highly encourage you to take a look around their website and support them in any way you can. One way Responsible Men is supporting the Pixel Project is by sharing information. So, have a look at the information below:
The Pixel Project, a global Web 2.0-driven awareness and fund raising campaign working to end Violence Against Women (VAW), is proud to launch The Pixel Project Wall of Support on 8 March 2010 in honour of International Women’s Day.
The Wall of Support is a gallery of video endorsements from people worldwide who support The Pixel Project’s mission to get men and women to work together to end VAW. Endorsements are uploaded to YouTube and displayed on the Wall of Support galleries in the Community Buzz section of The Pixel Project’s website.
By showing a human face and voice with every endorsement, The Pixel Project hopes that this global chorus of voices against VAW will ignite conversation and focus public attention on the urgency of ending gender-based violence afflicting one in three women worldwide.
Each endorsement will be counted as an “action” towards UNIFEM’s “Say NO – UNiTE” campaign’s bid to raise 1 million grassroots actions against VAW by November 2010.
Guidelines for submitting a video can be found at http://www.thepixelproject.net/community-buzz/wall-of-support/. For further inquiries, contact Chrissie Moulding at firstname.lastname@example.org.
I will be submitting a video soon and I strongly encourage you to do the same. This would be easy to ignore, but preventing violence against women is too important. Please take a moment to show your support. The Pixel Project has provided very clear instructions and even some assistance in writing the script. All you have to do is record and post to YouTube.
Today is International Women’s Day and I can’t think of a better way for everyone, especially men, to show our love and support for the women in our lives. Let your voice be heard and speak out against violence against women!
