The Call to Action of Stand Speak Rise Up!

We call on citizens of goodwill – who refuse to allow the bodies of women, children and men to be used as battlefields – to look into the hearts of survivors and open their own to action.

The Appeal of HRH The Grand Duchess of Luxembourg

If we cannot end war, let us at least end rape as a weapon.

I STAND UP with survivors, will you too? #standspeakriseup

Show us your photos and videos standing up with survivors on Twitter, Facebook and Instagram. The time is now to recognise, acknowledge and support survivors of sexual violence in fragile environments.
