Guyana: Voices Against Violence – National Anti-Violence Vigil II

Voices Against Violence – National Anti-Violence Vigil II

Georgetown, Guyana, July 27th, 2017:  Launched last year as an initiative to mark World Suicide Prevention Day, “Voices Against Violence” (VAV) saw close to 300 vigils in communities across Guyana. Now an annual undertaking, it is an attempt to get communities across Guyana involved in anti-violence activism, while fostering the concept of communal action for community well being.

Set for September 10, under the theme, ‘Take A Minute, Save A Life’ VAV is an initiative that and that brings communities together and is inexpensive and easy to organize – each participant simply needs a candle or can even use a cell phone. Thus vigils can be organized by religious institutions, local businesses, sports and youth clubs, political party groups, schools…just about any entity or set of individuals. Where possible two or more groups can collaborate.      [READ MORE – Vigil press release ]
