SpringIntoACTion Day is a call to action for all of us to #ACTNow with determination and dedication to end social injustices worldwide. Spring is a time of transition from darkness to light, and each of us can pledge to be that light for the causes and people around us.

Why we need to #ACTNow?

Because we have the power and responsibility to help countless lives that are exposed to racism, discrimination, poverty, abuses, and social injustices that continue to hurt personal and professional socio-economic growth across the globe; nonetheless, we can overcome these difficulties with tenacity, support, togetherness, and respect. Empathy and social cohesiveness creates fairness and hospitality which will create progress and inspire a future of diversity, equality and inclusiveness. 

Let us #SpringInToACTion with valuable insights into the reality that we are never alone in the world because there are numerous individuals, organisations, and communities who continue to fight against social injustice and exploitation on a daily basis.

What can we do to make an ImpACT?

Pledge Monetary Support

Social Income allows us to pledge 1% of our income and by #GivingEveryDay to help people get out of poverty. This is made possible by the widespread use of mobile phone-based money transfer services in developing countries, which makes sending money directly to people in need easier than ever. 

By combining two wealth redistribution strategies, Social Income aims to capitalise on this potential. The first is the idea of universal basic income, which offers hope for a more inclusive and egalitarian society. The use of direct and anticipatory financial transfers to those who are poor is the second. According to research, persons who receive direct aid considerably profit from it and reinvest it profitably, locally, and responsibly.

Volunteer the Time

Through global involvement, the United Nations Volunteers (UNV) programme supports peace and development. We collaborate with partners to promote the importance and universal acceptance of volunteerism while integrating qualified, highly motivated, and well-supported UN Volunteers into development activities.

Millions of people participate in development projects every day through major and small acts of voluntarism to better the lives of others as well as their own, their families, and their communities. On peace and development, both individual and collective activity has a significant influence. The Millennium Development Goals were achieved in large part thanks to volunteer work, and the Impact 2030 agenda and its Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) will benefit even more from it.

Support Us

We support everyone impacted by domestic violence. Women, in particular, are the backbone of our communities, and any infringement of their human rights anywhere in the globe constitutes a horrific crime against humanity. It is the moment for us to band together to end suffering and spread knowledge in order to prevent today’s problems from becoming the norm in the future.

What role can technology play in raising public awareness of domestic violence?
