The CCRC wants to share a campaign from the Global Partnership to End Violence Against Children, which focuses on amplifying calls to end corporal punishment of children as part of the Together to #ENDviolence global campaign and International Day to End Corporal Punishment of Children on 30th April.
Two high-level conferences will focus on ending corporal punishment. The first on 30th April will look at progress and delay in the global movement to prohibit corporal punishment of children; the second on 4th June will examine how prohibition of corporal punishment can be put into practice, with international examples of leadership and implementation. Speakers will include young people, Governments, human rights, legal and academic experts, and practitioners from around the world. A new report and new guidance will be launched at the conferences.
As part of this campaign we are also asking all our partners – Governments, organisations and individuals – to support a statement calling for accelerated action to prohibit and eliminate corporal punishment of children. Please help build the movement by adding your organisation or name in support of the statement.
You can find more information about the events and statement of support here.
We hope you will circulate information about the events and campaign in your networks, and join us in amplifying #EndCorporalPunishment this month.
