Caribbean artists are continuing in their efforts to focus the spotlight on ending violence against women and girls.
As part of their commitment to the UNiTE campaign, the Caribbean UNiTE Artistes agreed that during national and regional festivals they would seek to highlight the campaign during the high publicity events in which the majority of the populace participates.
To this end, Natalie “Natahlee” Burke is taking the opportunity of Crop Over – one of Barbados’ premier national events - which sees a high influx of visitors and Barbadians participating in the many activities during the July – early August period to share the UNiTE message.
Natahlee was captured in the local online news media Barbados Today and printed “Nation” newspaper advocating for UNiTE wearing a branded tee produced as part of the Caribbean artists UNiTE outreach efforts which carries the message: Say NO: UNiTE to End Violence Against Women and Girls.
