Walk with me for peace on the Golden Gate Bridge, International Women's Day,
March 8, 11am
On International Women's Day, thousands of people will show their solidarity with the women of Afghanistan, Iraq, Congo, Rwanda, South Sudan and other war-torn countries. Women for Women International's Join me on the Bridge campaign started in 2010 when women from Congo and Rwanda joined together on the bridge connecting their two countries, showing that they could build the bridges of peace and hope for the future. This action sparked a massive global movement, and last year they were joined by thousands of people on 464 bridges worldwide in 70 countries. Women are peace builders and with equality at the peace negotiation tables and within governing bodies of their countries they will build a more peaceful world.
WHY: We will walk in solidarity to demand peace, an end to violence against women and children, and a place for women at the peace negotiation tables.
WHERE: Warming Hut on Crissy Field 11am
WHEN: Thursday, March 8, 11am, proceeding to GGBridge at 11:30
**Participants can walk part or all of the Golden Gate Bridge. Of course, children are welcome.
