MESSAGE OF THE HONORABLE PRESIDING JUSTICE AMPARO M. CABOTAJE-TANG FOR 1 BILLION RISING REVOLUTION AND WOMEN'S MONTH 2019

Greetings to all!

Another year has passed and we find ourselves anew in the midst of February and March. These are key months for our Gender and Development initiatives as we are again given the opportunity to participate in consecutive campaigns celebrating and advocating the well-being of women.

The Court's participation in the One Billion Rising Campaign in February and Women's Month in March has become an important part of Sandiganbayan life. More than the customary activities and workshops, it allows us to come together to learn, affirm, and embody the latest GAD related policies and initiatives. It allows us to come together and take a public stand against the evils of violence, bigotry, and discrimination.

I commend the Committee on Gender Responsiveness chaired by Justice Ma. Theresa D.C. Gomez-Estoesta for the many activities it has lined up to assure the Court's active participation in these campaigns.

I invite everyone to participate in these activities and show the world that we in the Sandiganbayan are committed to making change work for women.

Thank you and mabuhay ang Sandiganbayan.
