Sponsor Our Walks to End Violence Against Women and Girls!

The walks are an annual event across the United States that serve to draw attention to the issue of gender-based violence and highlight UN Women’s programs to stop violence and empower women. Violence against women and girls is one of the world’s most widespread human right violations. It cuts across the boundaries of age, race, culture, wealth and geography. And it happens everywhere: at home and at work, on the streets and in schools, during times of peace and conflict. Up to 70 percent of women and girls will be beaten, coerced into sex or otherwise abused in their lifetime.
 
Funds raised from the Annual Walks go to the UN Women which provides grants to support local and national efforts to end violence against women and girls.  The UN Women works with partners across the world to secure much-needed services for women and girls affected by violence. The UN Women supports the implementation of national laws, policies and action plans that address ending violence against women and girls.  UN Women has distributed more than $103 million to 393 initiatives in 136 countries to end violence against women and girls since 1997.
