Join Savera UK to march with us through Liverpool City Centre in protest against ‘honour’-based abuse (HBA) and harmful practices. Stand in solidarity with survivors of HBA, female genital mutilation (FGM), forced marriage and child marriage and remember those who have been lost.

Meet on the steps of St Luke’s Bombed-Out Church from 3:30pm. Speeches will start at 4pm and will include Saliha Rashid, Savera UK Survivor Ambassador, Emily Spurrell, Merseyside PCC and Afrah Qassim, CEO & Founder Savera UK. Performers from Movema and Bring the Fire Project will also be in attendance.

As well as taking place on the International Day for the Elimination of Violence Against Women and Girls, the march will also mark the launch of Savera UK’s first-ever fundraising campaign ‘5K to end HBA’, which encourages people to take on a personal 5K challenge, between Friday, 25th November and Saturday 10th December 2022 in memory of the 5,000 people lost each year due to ‘honour’-based abuse (#5KForTheFiveThousand).

Following the march, we will be going to Derby Square to join the vigil for those lost to domestic violence and abuse, which starts at 5:30pm.
