Join me on the Bridge Campaign
To honor the resilience of millions of women survivors of war around the world, Women for Women International is hosting a global campaign called Join me on the Bridge on International Women's Day: March 8, 2010.
On that day, we will bring women from Rwanda and Congo together in peace on a bridge between their countries to demand an end to war and to demonstrate that women can build the bridges to peace and development. At the same time and in solidarity, we will bring women (and men!) together on bridges throughout the world, creating a truly global movement that says NO! to war and YES! to peace and hope.
We are planning Join me on the Bridge events on Monday, March 8 in New York City and London. Join us as we walk together across major bridges and then gather to create peace banners!
Can't make it to an existing bridge event? Bring Join me on the Bridge and the global women's movement to your town! Any effort, large or small, will make a big difference. The more towns, cities, schools, families, religious and civic groups participating in this movement, the greater our collective impact. If you don't have a bridge nearby, you can get creative and form a "human bridge!" Download the step-by-step toolkit here.
