Urgent Action Petition: Stop Attacks on Defenders of Women's Human Rights

Posted on May 16, 2017 by Women Thrive Alliance

Since the beginning of the year, one of Women Thrive Alliance member organizations in the Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC) has been targeted and attacked for their work to end child marriage. 

Women Thrive created a petition urging the government of the DRC to denounce these crimes and calling for their support and protection of defenders of women's human rights. The over 250 signatures have been sent to the Ambassador at the Permanent Mission of the Democratic Republic of the Congo to the United Nations and the U.N. Special Rapporteur on Human Rights.
