Engage with Thursdays in Black in 2024!

Engage with Thursdays in Black in 2024!

Join Global Ministries in observing Thursdays in Black. The Thursdays in Black campaign, started by the World Council of Churches, aims to advocate for and dream of a world without gender-based violence.

In every country, gender-based violence is a tragic reality. This violence is frequently hidden, and survivors are often silent, fearing stigma and further violence.

We all have a responsibility to speak out against violence and to ensure that all humans are safe from rape and violence in all places in our societies.

The campaign is simple but profound. Wear black on Thursdays. Declare that you are part of the global movement resisting attitudes and practices that permit rape and violence. Share your Thursdays in Black selfies on social media.

For Disciples:

Posting a Thursdays in Black selfie? Use #ccdocthursdaysinblack when sharing!

More opportunities to engage with this campaign will be available in 2024, including a video premier on Thursday, January 25. This video will be available on a variety of Disciples-affiliated social media platforms, including Disciples Women, Disciples Home Missions, Global Ministries, and more. 

Please also plan to join in conversations with other Disciples who are passionate about a world free of gender-based violence. The first conversation will take place via Zoom on Saturday, February 3, at 10 AM ET/ 7 AM PT. Registration for this and future conversations are here: https://tinyurl.com/ccdocthursdaysinblackwebinars
