The Brave Movement is a survivor-centered global movement campaigning for the right of all children and adolescents to live a life in safety and dignity, free from sexual violence.
Sexual violence against children and adolescents is the silent scourge of our time, threatening the safety and protection of children and adolescents everywhere. Brave Movement survivors and allies demand bold and transformative action from local, regional and global leaders to end childhood sexual violence.
Our survivor-centered movement is focused on advocacy for evidence-based powerful public policy solutions and campaigns to fundamentally shift societal norms, eradicating survivor stigma, and breaking the silence that enables sexual violence to continue. Together we demand prevention, healing and justice.
The Brave Movement launched in 2022 and is proudly hosted by Together for Girls, and works with members, allies and partners throughout the world.
While school-related gender-based violence (SRGBV) is prevalent, it is also preventable, and there are evidence-based solutions that show that teachers and school personnel can be significant changemakers when they take active roles in preventing, addressing, and responding to violence.
