New Westminster, BC – From November 25th to December 10th, 2017, the City of New Westminster’s Anvil Centre will be lit up in orange to show support of the Orange the World campaign, initiated by United Nation’s UNiTE to End Violence against Women and the Grandmothers Advocacy Network (GRAN).

The campaign’s theme is “Leave No One Behind: Ending Violence against Women and Girls” and uses the colour orange as a uniting theme to symbolize a brighter future free from violence. UNiTE invites organizations around the world to light up their buildings in orange in symbolic support of the campaign with GRAN drawing attention to the challenges older women in Africa face as a marginalized group.

By lighting up Anvil Centre for these days, the City stands in support of the Orange Day campaign’s goals of raising awareness and ending violence against women and girls around the world.
