“Can’t buy my silence” campaign

Zelda Perkins and Prof. Julie Macfarlane have joined together to create the “Can’t buy my silence” campaign to demand new legislation and regulations that ban NDA’s or “gag orders” for being used to silence people in cases of abuse, assault and other criminal activities. Equity Watch stands in full solidarity with their campaign.

“Non-disclosure agreements have become the default solution for organizations, corporations, individuals and public bodies to settle cases of sexual misconduct, racism, pregnancy discrimination and other human rights violations.”
