WARIF to Host the Virtual Edition of ‘No Tolerance March’ to Kick Against Sexual Violence | December 5th

Published

on


This year, following the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic, the #WARIFNoToleranceMarch is going virtual! Participants, friends, survivors, and supporters of WARIF are encouraged to wear their No Tolerance t-shirts and march, jog, walk or run at home, on the bridge, or in the streets to raise awareness to sexual violence.


Date: 5th of December 2020


Time: 7am – 7pm.

Participants are encouraged to show that they are part of the march and stay connected by sharing and posting their pictures and videos on social media with the hashtag #WARIFNoTolerance and by tagging @WARIF_NG.

The founder of WARIF, Dr. Kemi DaSilva-Ibru, while speaking on the importance of the march, said, “the rise of the covid-19 pandemic brought about a shadow pandemic, evidenced by a spike in the rate of sexual and domestic violence cases as survivors were forced to quarantine with their abusers. This increases the urgency of ensuring essential serviced are made available and offered free of charge by the organization. It also shows why it is imperative that WARIF continues to raise awareness to the prevalence of this menace. We are calling on everyone to join us again this year by wearing their t-shirts and saying  “no tolerance” to this national crisis.”
