Thank you to everyone who’s signed IRC’s War = Rape petition to help stop violence against women and girls.

Great news from Gerald Martone, IRC’s humanitarian affairs director, this morning. Gerry says we’re just 97 signatures away from meeting our goal of 50,000 to present to Congress later this month, demanding that the fight against sexual violence become a top legislative and funding priority.

Help us get there. If you haven’t signed the petition, please do–and tell your friends.
