I am so proud to be part of the sisterhood of Adventist churches today. This month the church introduces the enditnow campaign.
enditnow is a global campaign to raise awareness and advocate for the end of violence against women and girls around the world.
This campaign, which extends to more than 200 countries and territories, was launched in October 2009 in partnership between the Adventist Development and Relief Agency (ADRA)—a prominent humanitarian organization—and the Department of Women’s Ministries of the Seventh-day Adventist Church, two entities that are representative of the Adventist Church.
enditnow is the most important stand the Seventh-day Adventist Church has ever taken regarding violence against women and girls. Through this campaign, more than 15 million Adventist church members—men, women, and children—are expected to create a global movement that will be mobilized within their own communities, where each person will actively work to create awareness and share solutions on ways to end this global problem.
Seventh-day Adventists affirm the dignity and worth of each human being and decry all forms of physical, sexual, and emotional abuse. enditnow is a call to action for all Adventists and supporters to stand up and put into practice those principles we hold true.
We will have petition sign ups available for you soon so that we can all put into encourage the practice loving God and loving people.
