(always celebrated on the fourth Sabbath in August)
Raise awareness in your church and community, confront misogyny, advocate for victims and get your church involved in community action.
Abuse prevention and ending violence involves not only women, but also children, youth, families, and men. End it Now emphasis day will involve not just Women’s and Family Ministries but also the collaboration of Children’s Ministries, Family, Women, Health and the Ministerial Association. Within the South Pacific Division they engage the Discipleship Ministries Team to call for an End to Violence especially towards all Children and Women.
