LWF member churches organize activities promoting ‘Awareness, Action and Accountability’

(LWI) - Ensuring the promotion of gender justice at every level throughout the communion: that’s the ambitious goal the Lutheran World Federation (LWF) has set for itself, enshrined in the strategic priorities of the global communion for the coming years. 

As a crucial step towards achieving that goal, during the current 16 Days of Activism against Gender-Based Violence, LWF member churches in all parts of the globe are engaging in activities to increase ‘Awareness, Action and Accountability’ to overcome violence and protect vulnerable women and children.
