Global Action: Orange the World
The 25th of every month has been designated as Orange Day by the UN Women campaign Say No, UNiTE launched in 2009 to mobilize civil society, activists, governments and the UN system in order amplify the impact of the UN Secretary-General’s campaign, UNiTE to End Violence against Women.
Participants the world over are encouraged to wear a touch of orange in solidarity with the cause - the colour symbolizes a brighter future and a world free from violence against women and girls.
CAHMA Orange Art Group meets each month on 25th to create artworks, share their stories, examples, experience and knowledge in supporting and protecting women service users against violence.
To support this action and participate in the campaign you can buy some of their artworks to exhibit them in your work (or personal) space. All stories accompanying artworks are included as a printed version you can exhibit together with the painting.
