Gender-Based Violence & Tech 'Tweetathon' on Friday, May 22

This Friday the UNiTE Campaign will be hosting a 'Tweetathon' in honor of Orange Day, which is held on the 25th of every month. Each month has a different theme, and this month is technology for ending violence against women. To bring about awareness, there will be a Tweetathon this Friday in which people will use the hashtag #OrangeDay to share information on how tech is being used to prevent violence. Use this as an opportunity to share with your network the great work that is being done in this area and to raise awareness about Orange Day. Find out more info & ideas here:
