Day of Memory 2023
We would be grateful if you could take part in social engagement to raise awareness of our National Day of Memory.
This day provides an opportunity to honour the memory of victims of Honour Based Abuse. We would be incredibly grateful if you could share the pre-designed assets in the link below, using the hashtag #WeRemember on 14th July.
Any noise we can make on this issue helps to raise awareness of the issues and the support available to victims and survivors.
You can amplify our key messages by posting and sharing frequently throughout the day, encouraging users to re-share using the hashtag #WeRemember.
Want to end Honour Based Abuse? Let’s start by correctly defining it.
At our conference, Karma Nirvana will be launching our survivor-led definition on Honour Based Abuse.
During the past 18 months, we conducted workshops with members of Karma Nirvana’s Survivor Ambassador Panel, to ask them about:
- the key characteristics of Honour Based Abuse;
- their opinion of the current NPCC definition;
- their views on the relationship between HBA and domestic abuse; and
- what more they thought could be done to tackle HBA.
This feedback informed the development of a survivor-informed national working definition of Honour Based Abuse that is reflective of lived experience. This project was supported by Dr Lauren Eglen, Rights Lab Research Fellow in Gender and Forced Marriage, University of Nottingham.
