Renamed enditnow® Emphasis Day in 2014, the fourth Sabbath in August was originally designated Abuse Prevention Emphasis Day when Annual Council voted on September 26, 2001 to add this day to the worldwide church calendar. GCWM coordinates the production and distribution of the enditnow Emphasis Day resource packets, just as it does for the International Women’s Day of Prayer in March and the Women’s Ministries Emphasis day in June.
