So in case you’re wondering what all of the hoopla is over, and why insurers and advocates are fighting passionately for their position, check out this link and then let’s have a discussion:
The women of the DRC and Rwanda need our help so that they can help themselves. Women for Women International has served more than 40,000 women in both countries, and through Women for Women International you can help a woman gain the sense of self-worth, the ability to provide for her family with dignity and respect, and bring her one step closer to living in peace. These women are not looking for charity…they are looking for the opportunity to stand up and speak out; get training and develop the necessary skills to become self-sufficient…while being blessed with the chance to provide for and protect their children.
Join me and others this Sunday, March 7, 2010 at the 17th Street Bridge in Atlanta, Georgia from 12:00-1:00pm as we come together to participate in Women for Women International’s global campaign, Join Me on the Bridge, working together towards building peaceful bridges between the countries of Rwanda and the Congo. On this day we stand together on the 17th Street Bridge, and display peace banners to honor these women and millions of others who have survived war worldwide. Join Me on the Bridge unites women from around the world in a global movement that shows we can build bridges towards the development of a fruitful future.
I hope to see you there…men also…we’d love for you to join us so that you too can stand up and speak out for the very women that could be your mother, aunt, sister, niece, grand daughter, cousin, or your daughter.
You can register in advance (yes, the event is free), or if you can’t attend please find it in your heart to donate anything so that we can stand as family and say NO to war and YES to peace, love, and hope!
