The National Network to End Domestic Violence (NNEDV) recognizes November 20th as Universal Children’s Day, the day when the United Nations General Assembly adopted the Declaration of the Rights of the Child. Some of these rights include the right to life, health, and education; to not be discriminated against; to be protected from violence; and to have their views heard. On Universal Children’s Day, NNEDV celebrates and promotes the rights of children worldwide, while noting there is much work to be done to ensure that all children can exercise these rights.

After a presidential election that surfaced many issues related to violence against women and women’s equality, we are strengthened in our resolve and commitment to create a social, political, and economic environment in which gender-based violence no longer exists. Together with our partners across movements, we continue to stand against sexism, racism, homophobia, and all systemic oppressions that affect survivors and victims.
