Dear Office of Management and Budget: Fund Gender-based Violence Programs

Futures Without Violence is proud to report that the past year has shown exciting commitments by the U.S. government to prevent and respond to violence against women and girls internationally:

To keep the momentum going, FUTURES and coalition partners wrote a letter asking the White House Office of Management and Budget (OMB) to support funding to implement boththe U.S. Strategy to Prevent and Respond to Gender-based Violence Globally and the National Action Plan on Women, Peace, and Security. Funding for these initiatives would go directly to the women and girls around the world who need it most. Programming would range from safe school initiatives preventing violence and harassment of girls on the way to, from, and at school to social norm change programs that engage men and boys, elders, as well as local and religious leaders in combating harmful traditional practices targeted against women and girls.
