Voices of men and women committed to ending gender-based violence filled the Boss Room of the Church Center of the United Nations in New York last night to consider the role of men of faith in the struggle.
“It was very exciting sitting on this panel and discussing these issues because I was able to listen to stories and learn from my colleagues on the panel,” said the Rev. Fr. Michael Sie, a member of Interfaith Technical Working Group and Advisor for Episcopal Church of Liberia Relief and Development Gender Based Violence Program. “The next step now is to go back home and implement some of the things that I have learned to help raise a new generation of future leaders and advocates who will join us in the fight for change. This change will bring about gender equity and will encourage those who are in the minority to come on board, to hold hands and partake in a dialogue that promotes change for a brighter future that embraces gender equity.”
