Women Demand Peace and Equality: CODEPINK's Planned Actions for March 2005Monday, July 26 2010
CODEPINK, a US-based national network of women committed to peace and social justice, is organizing events in New York City and around the country to mark International Women's Day and the 10 year Review and Appraisal of the Beijing Platform for Action (BPFA). We stand opposed to US efforts to undermine the BPFA, and in support of its strong, international application. We are coming to New York City to remind the member states at the UN that women's issues are still vital, and to demand peace and equality for women everywhere.
We're scheduling many events in New York City, including social events like a poetry slam on March 6th and a reception on March 7th. On March 6th, we're holding an all-day activist training camp on the campus of Barnard College, a women's college in uptown Manhattan, with workshops on art and activism, media and public relations, and anti-racism, among others. That evening, we'll co-host a poetry slam with New York's Sacred Slam. On Monday, March 7th, CODEPINK and other activist women will meet at a dessert reception to network and meet fellow activists. And, on March 8th, International Women's Day, CODEPINK joins with a coalition of women's and progressive groups for a women's march and rally, under the banner of "Women Demand Peace and Equality!" All women are invited to all of our activities.
