Rise Up! Campaign launched in Delhi – here is how to make women’s voices heard this Election

The Haiyya team in Delhi has launched our Rise Up! Campaign. The campaign is geared towards getting women’s voices heard in the Delhi State Elections, which are scheduled for 4th of December. The Rise Up! campaign will be implemented in 4 constituencies in Delhi – Malviya Nagar, Kasturba Nagar, Karol Bagh and Model Town. Over 40 team captains from these constituencies have been trained by the Haiyya team. training

These team captains would be working on-ground, training more volunteers who will go door-to-door talking to women about their issues and urging them to come together. The teams will work on preparing a list of pressing women’s issues in each constituency and presenting them to the MLA candidates.The women in each constituency will be organised based on their own issues and would engage with the democratic process. They’ll meet with the MLA candidates, present their issues and make an informed choice about who is the best candidate. They will vote en mass  on the election day and make their voices count. This campaign wants to prove that women’s issues can not be ignored anymore, that women have the power to decide their own government, that women can push for better governance in our country.

The work in Delhi has just about started. Stay tuned to hear about the inspiring stories from the field.
