Save the date – 7th ILGA-LAC Conference
The petition for a Sex Offender Registry in Saint Lucia was submitted today to Honorable Alvina Reynolds, Minister of Health by our Communications Director, Mr. Norbert Williams.
Source: Petition Submitted!
In honour of my mother, who provided the upbringing that has given me the strength to stand up for what is right, I join in calling for sex offenders registry in Saint Lucia. Whatever the format, we must begin somewhere to show our concern for our children and declare unequivocally that we stand against sexual abuse, most particularly against children! Government of Saint Lucia what is your response to the petition by Zandoli International Foundation Caribbean? This is not a political issue, this is about the protection of our women and children. Let’s start to work out how this will work, our children cannot wait. SayNO – UNiTE to End Violence Against Women!
**LET EVERYONE KNOW YOU SUPPORT OUR PETITION**
Today we received confirmation from the Health Minister, Hon. Alvina Reynolds that she will receive, on Monday March 7th. 2016, our petition for a Sex Offender Registry.
Our logo for the “We Want To Know” campaign which we started a year ago has now changed to the one attached here: “We Still Want To Know”
We would like all in favour of a sex offender registry to show your support by changing your profile picture to this new logo. It will let everyone know you support our cause and very likely give courage to a victim to come out with their story.
We have spoken about it for years. The time to come together is now!!
