Special Thanks to the NYPD...New York's Finest!!!!
 

New York City- UN Women for Peace Association (UNWFPA) annual rally and march to end violence against women was held on Saturday, March 5th, 2016 at 11am at Dag Hammarskjöld Plaza, 47th Street between First and Second Avenues.  The event was free and thousands marched. Journalist Lisa Daftari emceed the rally and help lead the march.

The event was in celebration of International Women’s Day, and Dionne Warwick led thousands in a march to end violence against women. Warwick wowed the crowd as she sang with 40 members of Brooklyn’s own Christian Cultural Center choir What the World Needs Now Is Love. The choir continued to sing throughout the march to 42nd street.

The speakers at the rally included: Muna Rihani Al-Nasser, Chair of UNWFPA; Mrs. Ban Soon-taek, Patron of UN Women for Peace Association; Dionne Warwick, singer; Phumzile Mlambo-Ngcukva, Under-Secretary-General of the United Nations and the Executive Director of UN Women; HRH Princess Camilla of Bourbon Two Sicilies; Francine LeFrak, Founder Same Sky; Bushra Khayat Jomaa, UNWFPA special envoy; Rosemary DiCarlo, Former Ambassador to the United Nations Commissioner Cecile Noel, Mayor's Office to Combat Domestic Violence; Deputy Chief Juanita Holmes, Commanding Officer of NYPD Domestic Violence Unit; Kat Graham, Actress; Rita Cosby, News Anchor; Shandra Woworuntu, Co-Founder, Mentari, Appointed by President Obama to United States Advisory Council on Human Trafficking, and survivor of human trafficking, Jennifer Singleton, Managing Director, Women's Prison Association; and Ms. Nam Hee Kim, Chairwoman, International Women's Peace Group (IWPG).

Deputy Chief Juanita Holmes said Just because the word violence is proceeded by the word domestic it does not make the violence any softer, it does not make the violence any less.”

Actress Kat Graham energized crowd by saying “I’m proud to be here with the United Nations Women For Peace Association, an organization of women FOR women, that takes the opportunity to shine a light on the violence perpetrated against women all over the world and says “Enough is enough!”  Women from all corners of the globe, no matter if they face the horrors of war as far away as Syria or if they are the target of sexual violence right here in the United States, Women for Peace says no woman should endure such hardships and will do all they can to put an end to their suffering.  We have to continue to send the signal to these women that they are not alone.”

Warwick, was the 2016 recipient of the Voice of Peace Award, she said “I am grateful to have been asked by this most incredible group of ladies to be an honoree, and moreover, to be the Grand Marshal too. What greater honor could there be! I truly am beside myself with joy and look forward to being a part of this most prestigious event.”

As you read these words, nearly 5 million women and girls are living in slavery, victims of human trafficking. 60 million more are child brides, and 140 million live with the pain of enforced genital mutilation. These are more than just numbers; they are our mothers, our sisters, and our daughters.

Violence against women is a global issue. In some countries, one out of seven women are raped, abused, or mutilated. Around the globe, nearly one in five women under the age of fifteen are sexually abused. Over 130 million women have experienced genital mutilation. It is estimated that as many as 2.5 million people are trafficked annually into situations including prostitution, forced labor, slavery, or servitude; women and girls account for about 80 per cent of the detected victims.

Thanks to the following for making the 2016 March in March possible:

Crime Victims Treatment Center, District Council 37 AFSCME AFL-CIO, Georgetown University Women’s Leadership Institute, Global Movement for The Culture of Peace (GMCoP), Global Movement for the Culture of Peace + The Good News Agency, Institute for International Eduation (IIE), International Association of World Peace Advocates, International Council of Women, Global Family & NGO Committee on Sustainable Development-NY, International Women's Peace Group (IWPG), Mentari, National Organization for Women (NOW) First Virtual Chapter Young, Feminists & Allies, Peace Development Fund, Safe Horizon, Sanctuary for Families, Social Architects, South Asian Fund For Education, Scholarship & Training (SAFEST), Strategy 21 Partners, Take the Lead Women, The Lalla Project, The People's, Movement for Human Rights Learning, Women for Afghan Women, Women Moving Millions, Women's Prison Association, World Council of Religious Leaders, World Yoga Community, and Kelly Le Brock

UNWFPA believes violence against women and girls is a criminal act that should not be tolerated. Yet, as you read this, five million women and girls across the globe are suffering from forced sexual exploitation or are victims of human trafficking. More than 60 million girls have no access to - or are being deliberately excluded from - primary and secondary school. One in three women experience violence from an intimate partner or sexual violence from a stranger in their lifetime. UNWFPA was founded in 2008 under the patronage of H.E. Mrs. Ban Soon-taek. UNWFPA aims at raising awareness about these horrible crimes. We seek to promote and advance the goals of UN agencies that provide opportunities for women through social, cultural, educational and empowerment programs within the framework of the global peace-building process. All our proceeds go directly to the UN Trust Fund to End Violence Against Women. The Fund, which aims to prevent and end violence against women and girls, provides services and programs to those affected by violence, and supports the implementation of laws and policies conducive to ending violence against women
