Women Leaders for Peacebuilding is a new group formed to build on and promote U.N. Resolution 1325. The resolution was designed to create a framework for empowering half the world’s population as equal partners in preventing conflict and building peace in countries threatened and affected by war, violence, and insecurity, we know in our hearts there is work to be done on our own soil. While other countries are well on their way with action plans, the US seems to be stalled in "document creation." We are about action! Our focus is PROTECTION FROM VIOLENCE.
This presentation is based on “50 Ways to Promote Peace,” originally found on the Ben & Jerry’s website. We’ve tweaked the entries and added a couple of our own. If you’re intrigued, come join us on Facebook: http://facebook.com/groups/womenleadersforpeacebuilding
