*THURSDAY IN BLACK*
Gender based violence is a universal and global issue that harms men, women and children in their most private spheres.
The WCA of PCA has decided to be involved and take part in a simple but powerful campaign to address gender violence. Every Thursday, people around the world wear black as a symbol of strength and courage, representing our solidarity with victims and survivors of violence, and calling for a world without rape and violence.
In partaking in this campaign as the WCA we have agreed on identifying two Thursdays in a year, where all our members dress in full black, gather in our churches and conduct a prayer towards a rape and violence free world. The two Thursdays identified are (i) the last Thursday before Valentine’s day and (ii) the last Thursday before the commemoration of women’s day in August. Here follows pictures of these prayers in the many different prayer groups of our members.
