We are proud to introduce our eleventh voice in our “16 Voices in 16 Days” Campaign against gender-based violence!
Neon Dreams is an award-winning Canadian Alt-Pop duo as well as The Justice Desk's Global Goodwill Ambassadors! After experiencing our work first-hand, the group, their label and management team wanted to support the work of TJD. Neon Dreams member, Frank Kadillac explains: "When I was a kid I was put into programs to help me and I'm looking back and remembering all the people who didn't get the help, but these kids, they are going to turn out so great because you've given them more." Neon Dreams member Adrian Morris agreed saying that "I support The Justice Desk because this organisation is doing it at the root cause of the issues that these communities face. For them to make a change, they are doing it right from the beginning."
The Justice Desk believes in the power of the everyday person, especially in their ability to create lasting, impactful and effective change in their communities! Through this campaign, we hope to both raise awareness to #GBV, but also to unite and inspire others in order to take action within their own spaces. Ending GBV is not the fight of some, but of us all!
Let us never forget to recognise the incredible power that we as South Africans have, when we come together, to make a change.
By amplifying these 16 remarkable changemakers, we hope to inspire YOU in contributing YOUR own thoughts and voice, as we unite in solidarity in the important fight against gender-based violence.
