This year on November 26th, in solidarity with Women Who Use Drugs, as part of the global #16DaysOfActivism campaign to highlight Gender-Based Violence! in Cape Town, you’re invited to participate in the SANPUD FEMALIVE Commemorative Silent Walk, which will highlight the plight of Women Who Use Drugs and the violence they face on the streets of our country.
Our Commemorative Silent Walk will take place in Seapoint, Cape Town, at 1pm on Friday November 26th starting with a gathering at the front of Peninsula Hotel and ending at Greenpoint Lighthouse.
After the Walk, a representative from the Woodstock SAPS will lead a self-defence session to enable women to protect themselves, and all will be invited to sign a declaration to end violence against women who use drugs. Also available on the day will be refreshments, as well as the opportunity to donate women’s commodities and infant supplies to those in need.
Our Walk is about standing together and saying, “MY BODY, MY PROPERTY!’ – and we invite you to join us!
For those who can, please feel free to join us on the day to champion our cause.
For those that can’t, you’re invited to participate even if you can’t be physically present, by posting your messages of support and solidarity on our event page and will then be shared across our social media channels to amplify the voice of Women Who Use Drugs and all that stand against Gender-Based Violence.
When posting, you’re invited to use the hashtags below, to help amplify our voice against Gender-Based Violence:
