Kanga Rasi, Social Justice Advisor and Africa Campaign Director at the Brave Movement, speaks about the power of data to advocate for policies to prevent gender-based violence.

Investing in ending childhood sexual violence is the right thing to do, and we must protect kids and support those who have experienced this horrible trauma.
