＊Invitation to CODE PINK OSAKA＊
Dear Hisae and Code Pink sisters in Osaka,
Greetings of peace! It has been a long while since our 2009 Conference on Women, Peace and Security in Manila. Since then, many of us have communicated and worked together through our Peace Women Partners network. We know that you continue to work in your own areas of influence for the advancement of women’s lives in the world.
Now, more than ever, we are challenged by increasing conflicts and disasters that threaten women’s peace and security in Asia, the Pacific and all over the world. Therefore it is timely and urgent to gather women leaders like you to discuss the work that we do in the fields of peace building, disaster risk management and recovery, and sustainable development. Together we will develop common strategies for women to advance their participation and leadership towards a world where peace, justice and security prevail for all.
We are pleased to invite you to our International Conference on Women, Peace and Security with the theme: WOMEN LEADERS IN PEACEBUILDING AND REBUILDING LIVES. The Conference shall be held in Lingayen, Pangasinan on Feb. 3-5, 2016. An International Forum and Press Briefing shall be conducted on Feb. 2, 2016 at the University of the Philippines, Diliman, Quezon City.
