Held each year on this day is an effort to honor and support the victims of injustice worldwide. Many parts of the world face their most significant challenges rooted in wars and crimes against humanity. The most vulnerable of these are the children and women. Today is a celebration of the significant steps the international tribunal for justice has taken. Take a look at two ways to show support for this cause:

  • Remember the victims and acknowledge their struggles. Use social media to spread awareness on current issues surrounding justice and reach out to victims who need most of the world’s support.

  • Support the cause by donating, volunteering, or joining organizations keen to fight injustices and promote every victim’s right to justice. This includes women, children, and human rights.
