TRC is committed to promoting racial reconciliation and gender equality. We invite you to Experience the TRC Global Summit on racism and participate in the year-round campaign to end gender based violence, #Educate2EndGBV.
Gender Based Violence (GBV) is learned behavior, generally by males, directed against women, girls, and non-binary people. It’s rooted in gender inequality, the abuse of power, and harmful norms. GBV knows no racial, social, economic or national boundaries. It intensified during the COVID-19 pandemic to the extent that the United Nations refers to GBV as the “Shadow Pandemic”. GBV is preventable!Here’s how you can make a difference:
Silence is not an option.

TRC has launched the Orange Couch Conversations course to galvanize youth around the world to prevent and end gender based violence where they live through civic education and activism.
Students anywhere in the world may take the free online TRC Orange Couch Conversations course. We’re transforming social media into a global classroom. Students complete assignments by sharing their work on social media. Through TRC’s Orange Couch Conversations course they’re using their online presence and power to advocate and raise awareness to end gender based violence. Students can partner from anywhere in the world and work together on their assignments. Enrollment is year-round. Students may also apply for a scholarship to earn academic credit, transferable to their local school, for learning how to identify and prevent gender based violence where they live.
We’re putting civic education and activism into action to end gender based violence at schools.
