URGENT message from the ICchange campaign ...

We campaign to secure the ratification of the Istanbul Convention (IC) in the UK.The IC is the strongest legal framework that exists to tackle violence and against women and girls in the UK. It offers REAL change - if made law.

On Friday 16 December MPs are voting on a law to help ensure the IC gets made law in the UK. To make sure this happens, please write to your MP ASAP and ask them to attend the debate and support bill.


Join us calling for change, calling for women and girls in the UK to get the best protection against violence possible.
