USM is encouraging all student, staff and faculty to wear Orange on November 24th in Support of International Day for the Elimination of Violence Against Women
As we approach the International Day for the Elimination of Violence against Women on November 25th, we would like to invite all students, faculty, and staff to participate in a special initiative on Friday, November 24th.

Violence against women is a global issue that affects millions of lives. The International Day for the Elimination of Violence against Women, observed annually on November 25, marks the beginning of 16 Days of Activism Against Gender-Based Violence. This campaign aims to raise awareness and take action to end violence against women and girls around the world.

To show our support and solidarity for this important cause, we encourage everyone, from USM students, staff, faculty, and management team to wear the color orange on Friday, November 24th, 2023. Orange is the official color of the UN's UNiTE campaign, which calls for global efforts to eliminate violence against women and girls.

Wearing orange on this day is a visible sign of our commitment to creating a world where women and girls can live free from violence and discrimination. It is a small yet impactful way to raise awareness and start important conversations about this critical issue. By coming together as a community and wearing orange, we send a powerful message that we stand united against gender-based violence.

Let's make our campus a beacon of support for this vital cause by wearing orange on Friday, November 24th, and by engaging in meaningful discussions about how we can contribute to the elimination of violence against women.

Together, we can make a difference, Teamwork makes the dream work!
