Orange İzmir

Project Information

The 16-Day Activism campaign starts on November 25, the International Day for the Elimination of Violence against Women, and ends on December 10, Human Rights Day. These days are marked to galvanize action to end violence against women and girls around the world.

This campaign was adapted to Izmir with the “Orange Izmir” title in 2017, received significant support in a very short time by many people, workplaces, cafes, restaurants, and companies around Izmir. On the last day of the campaign, many people attended the Orange Pride, and the movement attracted generous attention from the media.

After that date, under the umbrella of the Orange Association, which turned into an institutional structure in 2018, simultaneously with the activism program of the United Nations, the Orange Izmir campaign continued to be carried out with more attendees and institutional support, and this tradition will continue for the upcoming years.
