In our pledge to the #WeRiseUnitedSA campaign and all that it embodies, we have created a powerful emblem for your daily wear that projects a decisive “enough is enough” to gender-based violence.
We recognise that in the absence of the prosperity of our women, our society is in jeopardy for all involved as an injury to one is an injury to all. It is therefore our mission to secure urgent change, together.
Let us ensure that we are heard by expanding our collective voice to bring about the awareness that is essential to shifting our dire reality.
The WeRiseUnitedSA Lapel Pin demonstrates the solidarity of all South Africans, as a reminder of our intent as a nation to change the unacceptable dynamics that constrain us.
It also promotes change and healing as proceeds from the sale of the lapel pin support Lawyers Against Abuse in their efforts to ensure that perpetrators are brought to justice and that those affected have access to the medical and psychological assistance that they so desperately need.
Collective Call to Action
Our objective is for men and women in South Africa to wear our lapel pin daily as a united front in the collective call to action that promotes immediate change.

How we can help
Lawyers against Abuse (LvA) is a non-profit organisation that provides free legal services and therapy to victims of gender-based violence (GBV), which includes sexual violence, domestic violence and child abuse. In particular, LvA’s legal team provides comprehensive support with protection orders and in criminal cases of rape, sexual assault and assault. In a parallel process, LvA’s therapists provide trauma debriefing, ongoing therapy and counselling to attend to the client’s emotional, psychological, and mental health needs. Lastly, LvA works to strengthen the justice system’s response to GBV by working closely with key officials to push for the effective implementation of existing legislation, dignified treatment of victims, and accountability in instances of misconduct.
