Join Me on the Bridge – Women for Women International


Right now, as I write this, there is a woman who is being ravaged by the atrocities of war. She is like many women whose lives have been irreparably damaged by war and like countless women around the world she teeters on the brink of having lost everything, having no voice and no hope. Thankfully, Women for Women International works tirelessly for these women.

We are thrilled to have partnered with Women for Women International to spread the word about their annual event celebrating International Women’s Day: Join Me on the Bridge on March 8.

Women for Women International provides women survivors of war, civil strife and other conflicts with the tools and resources to move from crisis and poverty to stability and self-sufficiency, thereby promoting viable civil societies. They are changing the world one woman at a time.

They work with socially excluded women in eight countries where war and conflict have devastated lives and communities. Each woman we serve has her own story—some of loved ones murdered, and others of physical and emotional trauma. Most have endured a struggle for survival.

On March 8 women around the world will be gathering on bridges in solidarity to express hope and peace for the future. If you would like to stand in support of women in war ravaged countries, visit JoinMeOnTheBridge.org to find an event near you. And make sure to tweet with the #Bridge12 hashtag.
