The Anglican Communion has launched a social media video campaign to mark this year’s 30th anniversary of the annual international 16 Days of Activism Against Gender-Based Violence campaign.
Young Anglicans from around the world are being invited to take part in the campaign by submitting a video which the Anglican Communion Office can release during the 16 Days, which runs from 25 November to 10 December. Entries for the campaign – “Exposure – Focusing the lens on gender-based violence” can be submitted until 31 October.
The Anglican Communion’s Project Director for Gender Justice, Mandy Marshall, said: “sadly gender based violence is still with us 30 years after the campaign started, yet there is amazing work going on around the Communion to address it.
“We need to hear the voices and views of young Anglicans to challenge us into prioritising ending GBV in our churches.”
Young Anglicans – defined for this campaign as Anglicans aged 35 or under – are invited to submit videos of up to two-minutes duration by email or WhatsApp. The selected videos will be published by the Anglican Communion Office during the 16 Days of Activism. Full details of the campaign, and information about how to submit videos, are available at anglicancommunion.org/exposure.
