People for Parity is a social change initiative that envisions a world with gender peace- a state of reconciliation and collaborative co-existence between people of all genders. This is a state of increased empathy and understanding leading to abolition of normative forms of gender based violence and discrimination. It works with youth and institutions to create a generation of change-makers to lead non-violent dialogue within communities on transforming social norms and beliefs that discriminate on the basis of gender and affect the human rights of community members.
