Come join Daya Trust and Wellington’s women and men and walk for peace and the empowerment of women:
Friday 8 March (International Women’s Day)
PEACE WALK – assemble at 12.15pm at Parliament
PEACE FESTIVAL @ TE PAPA – 6.30pm at the marae at Te Papa, the silent auction is raising funds for Daya Trust, Women’s Refuge & Shakti Ethnic Women.
We all hope for Peace.
The Wellington Peace Walk for Women is organised to raise awareness of our interconnectedness and interdependence in our hope and work towards the attainment of peace.
We invite all Wellington women from all walks of life, from different religions and diverse beliefs, from different ethnicities and cultures to join the Walk. Walk to support the protest against violence on women and children. Walk to support protest against wars. Walk to support empowerment of women.
We hear statements that the world is becoming increasingly interconnected. Women’s nurturing role is essential for creating and maintaining an environment of peace at home and their extended communities.
We need to move forward together to extend our responsibility to one another and extend our community to create an environment where peace is possible. We hope that this walk will be the start of each woman’s participation, advocacy, immersion and support towards the Culture of Peace.
