ONE MILLION STARS TO END VIOLENCE
A Community Project
Perak Women for Women Society (PWW) & Soroptimist International Ipoh (SI Ipoh)
'One Million Stars to End Violence’, is a love- and- peace -filled community project. These beautiful stars are symbols of light, courage and solidarity to end all forms of violence, including violence against women and children, bullying and racism.
The One Million Stars project is an opportunity for us to be the light and hope in the world and to make something beautiful and powerful together. We know that domestic violence, violence on our streets, racism and harassment are happening RIGHT NOW, and often, it is difficult to know what to do to help those who are suffering; and to help prevent it.
The One Million Stars project is an opportunity to remind each other that we CAN do something about it and not feel paralysed by all that is broken, with humanity.
Our goal is to make one million stars, and to have them hung up and installed at a strategic venue to show case the stars and to advocate a stop to violence. Some of us are in the midst of making as many stars as we can, for this project to be launched, in conjunction with the UN 16 Days of Activism to end Gender-based Violence on Saturday 25th November 2017. We target to reach a million stars by March 2018 in conjunction with International Women’s Day, another event to honour women.
Every woven star reminds us that we have to MAKE peace and a safe haven, which doesn't just happen without our care and involvement. Every star is a commitment to resist violence, hatred and harbour revenge; instead we are reminded to believe in forgiveness and healing.
Ending violence is OUR responsibility, not one person’s, not one organisation or leader. Us. With open hearts, open minds, everyone is welcome. Everyone matters.
