It's not Men in Black, but men and women in black.
It's a campaign for people to wear black on Thursday's started again recently by the World Council of Churches.
The campaign encourages and challenges churches to come together as one on Thursdays.
It does this by asking people to wear black in order to indicate awareness and the hope that eventually rape and violence within our communities will come to an end.
Fulata Mbano-Moyo, WCC program executive for Women in Church and Society, wants to accompany those who carry physical and or mental scars from violence and rape.
"Through this campaign, we want to accompany our sisters, who bear the scars of violence, invisible and visible, in Syria, Palestine and Israel, Egypt, the Democratic Republic of Congo, Pakistan and the whole world, where women's bodies remain a battlefield, whether in armed conflict or so-called 'peaceful' situations," Mbano-Moyo said.
On Monday October 28 through Tuesday October 29, participants gathered a few days before the World Council of Churches Assembly began for a pre-meeting regarding gender justice.
Both men and women attended the event, which celebrated 60-years of commitment to gender justice and advocacy within the community of women and men in church and society.
The WCC encourages its guests and nations, both men and women, to participate in the campaign launched on Thursday October 31 by wearing black.
Individuals, who wear black have symbolized a peaceful protest against rape and violence.
The "Thursdays in Black" campaign originated from protests that began in the 1970s in regards to Mothers of the Disappeared in Argentina.
"These women began wearing black sashes in honor of their friends and family members who were disappearing, being raped, and abused.
"They would gather every Thursday in silence to protest the loss of loved ones under the military dictatorship, with the aim of raising the government's awareness that these acts of violence were happening in their homeland," thursdaysinblack.co.za stated.
Thursday's in Black Campaign became an international human rights campaign that was inspired by the World Council of Churches in the 1980s to protest against rape and violence.
The campaign has allowed both men and women to raise awareness in efforts to a world without rape and violence against women and children.
The campaign encourages and challenges churches to come together as one on Thursdays; it does this by asking people to wear black in order to indicate awareness and the hope that eventually rape and violence within our communities will come to an end.
"We have a desire for a community where we can all walk safely without fear of being beaten up, verbally abused, and raped, of being discriminated against due to one's gender or sexual orientation.
"Wearing black on Thursday's highlights the unacceptably high levels of abuse against women in our society," thursdaysinblack.co.za said.
The commitment to gender justice and advocacy will continue to spread from nation to nation during the WCC assembly and throughout the world.
"Through this simple campaign, participants are invited to be part of a global movement urging an end to violence against women. 'Thursdays in Black'," the WCC says on its website email@example.com said.
"Through this campaign we are demanding a world free of rape and violence," Mbano-Moyo said.
