Domestic Violence Advocacy

  • In Ukraine, Project Kesher activists were involved in the process of designing new legislation and in October 2018, testified in their legislature about how the law is working one year after implementation.  

  • In Russia, Project Kesher is hard at work with a national coalition of women preparing to introduce new legislation to their national legislature, the Duma.  Working with their interfaith coalition, they speak regularly with faith leaders about way faith communities can reach into our texts and traditions to ensure that women are not abused.  

In both countries, activists speak in the schools, teaching both girls and boys how to have healthy relationships.  

In Israel, Project Kesher activists can be seen protesting on the streets and testifying in the Knesset to end the silence about domestic violence in Russian-speaking homes and the need for resources to reach more women about this problem.
