For further information about Women in Black call Pat Robertson 932-4900. www.womeninblack.org/ Background information: Women In Black: is a worldwide network of women committed to peace with justice and actively opposed to injustice, war, militarism and other forms of violence. It is not an organization, but a means of communication and a formula for action. There are over 150 Women in Black groups around the world. It is a way to communicate that an end must come to the massive amount of violence that occurs every day in the world – whether domestic or through military actions. Women in Black as it exists today originated in 1988 in Israel where Israeli and Palestinian women silently protested the occupation of the West Bank and Gaza. They still hold weekly vigils and women around the world stand in solidarity to silently protest violence in the world. Women dress in black to symbolize their solidarity with victims of violence. Violence in all its forms demonstrates failure and cowardice. We are united by our commitment to a world free of violence and injustice.
