National Empowerment and Transformation of the Jamaican Society is seen as an important paradigm for the resocialization of a people who have been subjected to decades of a declining social and economic order. Of immediate concern to our organization is the continued and sustained incidence of violence in the society particularly the recent upsurge which has been affecting our women and children.
From an abundance of concern Unite Jamaica People have decided to Launch a campaign to be dubbed, Stop The Violence:Unite The Heart Of The People.
This campaign aims to raise public awareness and stimulate political will ,engage civil society and garner resources for preventing and ending all forms of violence in JAMAICA.,
The vision of the campaign Stop The Violence : Unite The Heart Of The People is for a Jamaica free from violence. This vision can only be realized through meaningful actions and on going political commitments of national governments, backed by the support of all civic minded citizens and organizations who recognize the debilitating effects that continued violence will have on the society and the likely fall out in all other sectors.The mission to Stop The Violence: Unite The Heart of The People will need dedicated persons coupled with a strategic plan and adequate resources to actualize.
Stop The Violence : Unite The Heart Of The People campaign is calling on the governments, civil society, women’s organizations, men, young people, the private sector, the media and the entire Jamaica system to join forces and unite in addressing this urgent national pandemic.
Through its advocacy initiatives at the Diaspora ,regional and national levels, Stop The Violence : Unite The Heart Of The People campaign is working to mobilize individuals,communities and a wide stake holder base.
