Thursdays in Black
We encourage local churches to join hands with people around the world by wearing black on Thursdays to indicate that we are tired of putting up with rape and violence in our communities and that we have a desire for a community where we can all walk safely without fear of being beaten up, verbally abused, raped, of being discriminated against due to one’s gender or sexual orientation. “Wearing black on Thursdays highlights the unacceptably high levels of abuse against women in our society.” To read more on Thursdays in Black go to thursdaysinblack.co.
