According to the NYC Mayor’s Office, Mayor Eric Adams announced that City Hall and several other municipal buildings will be lit orange for the annual “16 Days of Activism Against Gender-Based Violence” campaign. The campaign aims to raise awareness about the consequences of gender-based violence.

The lighting of city buildings will be done in coordination with other New York City landmarks across the five boroughs.

Eric Adam says that “Gender-based violence is abuse that exploits the unequal power in relationships between genders, and can happen anywhere in our city, to anyone, and takes many forms, whether it be verbal, physical, or mental.

He further said that “This is a public safety issue that impacts us all and those who have or are suffering from gender-based violence. Every New Yorker deserves safe spaces and healthy lives. That is why this administration is fighting to end gender-based violence across every borough and why it is committed to preventing and eliminating all forms of violence against all people.”
