Domestic Abuse

In addition to suporting Mothers' Union's annual campaign, “16 Days of Activism Against Gender Based Violence” which runs from Sunday 25th November until Human Rights Day on Sunday 10th December, Coventry MU is also supporting their new campaign, “RISE UP against domestic abuse”.

purple heartsIn support of these campaigns some Mothers' Union branches will be displaying sets of shoes with the words of domestic abuse survivors in their church, some will be placing a red chair in their church to act as a powerful symbol of the many women and young girls killed through gender based violence and some will be draping purple ribbons or purple and white love hearts knitted bunting inside and/or outside to raise awareness of the “no more 1 in 3” message.

If your branch does any of these things, please remember to post about it on social media.
