Outside where ever you happen to be on the globe
Saturday March 8, 2014 at 7pm your time,
Just stand outside with a lit candle in hand at 7pm, for whatever length of time you see fit, to Honor the thousands who suffer at the hands of these practices every year.
It is important to mention as an event coordinator we collect no funds whatsoever. This is not an effort to create a new organization. Nor do we plan to align ourselves with any one organization.
Our goal is to raise awareness of these crimes and provide a platform to groups, organizations and individuals all over the world who are fighting for this cause. This is a way to engage their communities and take action against these practices in a peaceful and powerful way.
If this gets big enough it will make a very powerful statement.
May we show that while humanity is diverse in many areas we unite under basic human values.
It is of the utmost importance that:
- this demonstration remain peaceful
- we recognize we are uniting against Honor related Killings and Crimes NOT against any particular faith or faiths
- the message we are sending is one of peace and love; designed to defend the rights of all those effected by this practice, to live in peace
- everyone should feel welcome to join this movement
