Global Hope 365 promotes global change through local action. When Rima Nashashibi became increasingly aware of the various types of injustices women and girls suffer due to local and global gender-based violence, she founded Global Hope 365 to end the harmful violence women and girls experience in the United States, namely Child Marriage and Human Trafficking. Many states, including California, allow for marriage under the age of 18, with parental and/or judicial consent. These exceptions including parental and judicial consent have allowed for vulnerable children to be married into legal contracts that take away their rights to sovereignty and make children vulnerable to abusive marriages. The American Medical Association has called for an end to Child Marriage stating “Child marriage is associated with higher rates of sexually transmitted infections, early pregnancies, divorce, and intimate partner violence than women married at age 21.” Join us as we discuss this important matter and learn what role we can play to better the situation
