Ascend Domestic Abuse Service participate in One Billion Rising Campaign

Ascend Domestic Abuse Service provides support and information to women who have or are experiencing domestic abuse in their intimate relationships across North Tipperary.

 

This year Ascend will participate in the One Billion Rising Campaign.  This is the biggest mass action to end violence against women in human history.  The campaign, launched on Valentine’s Day 2012, began as a call to action based on the staggering statistic that 1 in 3 women across the planet will be beaten or raped during her lifetime.  That is ONE BILLION WOMEN AND GIRLS.

 

Every February hundreds of countries across the world march to show our local communities and the world what one billion looks like and shine a light on the rampant impunity and injustice that survivors most often face.

 

On Wednesday, 14th of February, 2018 Ascend Domestic Abuse Service will participate in the campaign. We will be gathering at Nenagh Court House at 10am and will walk to the Nenagh Civic Office.
