Dear brother Charles:

I hope this message finds you in good health and at ease. Allow me to inform you that we have publicly launched the ANTI VIOLENCE AGAINST WOMEN ACT (AVAWA) campaign. We hope you will support the Bill by signing the petition.  We also hope that you will encourage your network to sign the petition as well and support our goal to reach 1,000,000 signatures. Volume of people signing on behalf of an organization will be shared openly and merited as co-signees of the petition and recognized partners.

As you may agree, we need all the support we can get to have the Anti Violence Against Women Act (AVAWA) adopted as an imperative component of sustainable legislative strategy for peace and security in Africa. The AVAWA initiative is a non-intrusive diplomatic strategy to mitigate as well as make ending violence against women and girls a top priority for African States. AVAWA suggests that the African States’ governments honor the existing provision for women as stated in their constitutions with a comprehensive, multi-sectorial strategic national plan for reducing and ending violence against women. Adopting AVAWA may encourage countries that do not have gender sensitive legislation in their constitution to recognize the need for such inclusion.  Your endorsement will make the AVAWA annual report a legal tender of nations’ accountability act on the issue of women and human rights. Failure to make effective use of the opportunity that AVAWA presents may subject African countries to a perpetual cycle of interventionist agenda that has no real effect.

Making AVAWA a priority gives Africa a great boost on its cause for self-determination with extensive benefit from the value of advancing the status for women around the world. It will also empower the Anti Violence Against Women Associations to create a global network and set stage for the PINK Africa Summit. Detail information about AVAWA is provided to guide you through the full understanding of the detriments of Violence Against Women and the all-encompassing benefit of AVAWA at this link:
