A unique endeavor bringing together men who are allies in the fight to raise global awareness on behalf of women and girls around the world.
The Vital Voices Solidarity Council is a unique endeavor bringing together men who are allies in the fight to raise global awareness on behalf of women and girls around the world. It will build a platform to highlight men’s engagement to protect and defend fundamental human rights, to strengthen partnerships with individuals, organizations and corporations. The primary issue areas of focus will be on human trafficking, domestic violence, sexual violence and harmful practices, and engaging boys and men in meaningful conversations about masculinity.
The Council will also identify and nominate men to receive the annual Solidarity Award, which will be presented in New York City on International Human Rights Day (December 10, 2018).
