Canadian Women's March Committee May 2005 Update

Monday, July 26 2010

Exciting progress has been made by the Canadian Women March Committee to celebrate the reception of the Global Charter for Humanity.

Events are planned in Vancouver, Yellowknife, Winnipeg, Ottawa, Moncton and Quebec City as the Charter travels across Canada.

YWCA Canada is sponsoring a young woman, Tonika Morgan, to carry the Global Charter for Humanity from event to event. Tonika will be in Vancouver to accept the Charter at the United States border on May 1st and will be its guardian and bearer until it leaves Canada on May 7th from Quebec City.

The Charter was created and agreed upon by 6000 women's organizations world wide. It is based on 5 core values; equality, freedom, solidarity, justice and peace. It is a feminist vision of a world free of exploitation, poverty and violence. It was launched on March 8, 2005 in Sao Paolo, Brazil, and will finish its global journey in Burkina Faso on October 17, 2005. You can track its progress by visiting: www.marchemondiale.org

Here's a quick peek at the Schedule of Events.
