In Partnership with the Consortium on Gender, Security and Human Rights- UMASS- Boston
Are you concerned about the impact of war and militarization on women here at home?
How about gun violence in our communities…domestic violence…women and economic
disparity…environmental justice…elder and immigrant concerns…
Here is your opportunity to have input into the
U.S. National Action Plan (NAP) on Women, Peace and Security.
Women’s voices will be heard. Last year, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton made a historic commitment to advance the status of women by developing a plan to implement UN Resolution 1325 in U.S. policy and practice, a plan scheduled to be completed by November 2011. WILPF has the powerful opportunity to organize five grass-roots meetings in the U.S. for collective input on what “security” really means to women, with a representative of the State Department’s Office of Global Affairs in attendance.
We invite you to participate in the Boston Consultation
on the Women, Peace, and Security NAP
