Orange Walsall - 16 Days of Action

What is 16 Days of Action?

The global theme of this year’s 'Orange the World' 16 Days of Activism against Gender-based Violence, which runs from 25 November to 10 December 2023, is “UNITE! Invest to prevent violence against women and girls”. SaferWalsall Partnership have planned a schedule of events called 'Orange Walsall' that span from 25 November to 10 December in order to incorporate three major events: the United Nations Day for the Elimination of Violence Against Women (25 November), World Aids Day (1 December), Human Rights Day (10 December) in their 16 Days of Action Against Domestic Abuse.
