KAIROS is excited to invite you to join us at our upcoming Women of Courage: Women, Peace and Security South-South Gathering virtual public event to be held on November 26, 2020, at 10.00am-12.00pm Eastern Time.
This event will feature KAIROS Women of Courage: Women, Peace and Security partners:
- Organización Femenina Popular (Colombia)
- Héritiers de la Justice (Democratic Republic of Congo)
- South Sudan Council of Churches – National Women’s Programme
- Wi’am: Palestinian Conflict Transformation Centre (West Bank)
Partners and beneficiaries will share stories of courage and change from their experiences working for inclusive, equitable and just peace in very fragile contexts. These will be followed by reflections from KAIROS members, Global Affairs Canada and the Canadian government.
This public event commemorates the 20th anniversary of the UN Security Council Resolution 1325 on Women, Peace and Security and coincides with the 16 Days of Activism against Gender-Based Violence annual international campaign November 25 – December 10, Human Rights Day.
From November 24-27 KAIROS Women of Courage: Women, Peace and Security partners will gather virtually at the second South-South Gathering of the program. During this virtual gathering, partners will have the opportunity to share and reflect on their work with grassroots women peacebuilders, exchange experiences and strategies on how they are responding to the pandemic and strengthen collective advocacy and solidarity.
We look forward to sharing and learning with you during the public South-South virtual event on November 26.
