Asia Society for Social Improvement and Sustainable Transformation (ASSIST) and the Women’s Crisis Center are holding Barangay Campaigns for the USE RA 9262 (Undertaking Survivors’ Experience in accessing RA 9262 – The Anti-Violence against Women and Children (Anti-VAWC) Act) Project on September 16, 17 and 18 in Brgy. UP Campus, Brgy. Bagong Silangan and Brgy. Sta. Lucia, respectively.
Through this activity, the Project Team hopes to advocate for changes in the law and legal procedures relevant to addressing violence against women and their children.
Funded by the European Union, USE RA 9262 is a two-year project set to end on November 2011. It seeks to establish a monitoring system on RA 9262 that is anchored on women’s experiences and on the enhanced capabilities of non-government organizations handling domestic violence cases, leading to the implementation of the law that works for women victim-survivors in reclaiming their rights.
