If you feel drowned, it is not love, it is the campaign that will be carried out this year in 17 institutes of the municipality, organized by the Department of Equality of the City Council of Cartagena and that is part of the Educational Program for the Promotion of Equality and Prevention and Awareness of Gender Violence.
The program is funded from credits received from the Ministry of the Presidency, Relations with the Courts and Equality.
The activities framed in this campaign were presented this Thursday, on the eve of Valentine's Day, by the Councilor for Equality, David Martínez, and the coordinator of the Department of Equality, María José Mercader.
The main objective of the program is, as reported by Councilor for Equality, David Martínez, "eradicate the Violence Machistas through a broad and strong awareness and prevention in secondary schools in the municipality of Cartagena, through recreational and participatory workshops" , to which this year two themes are included as a novelty: New Masculinities, towards positive masculinity and ethnic diversity.
In addition, another new activity in the educational centers will be a Freestyle Rap, with two young artists with the collaboration of the UrbanCT program of the Department of Youth.
As is tradition, stickers will be distributed to schools and bracelets will be distributed with the slogan "If you feel drowned It is not Love."
Likewise, posters will be placed both in secondary schools, health centers, public buildings and urban furniture, as the campaign also seeks to create social awareness in the general public.
Its specific objectives include a greater social commitment in the eradication of gender-based violence, identifying attitudes and ideas that create and reproduce stereotyped roles, beliefs and prejudices that condition behaviors by maintaining unequal traditional topics, most likely transmitted through education. from one generation to another.
