Dear Peace Lover,

Our Celebration for Peace on November 11, 2002 generated many requests to be part of our activities. Since that event grew out of a conversation group that was started in June, we thought this would also be best way for others to participate. You are invited to join us in an opportunity to share our desires for a peaceful world through conversations with one another.

Please join us for an informal tea on Sunday, January 26, 2003, from 2:30p.m. to 5:30 p.m. at the Santa Cruz Friends Meeting (Quaker) Center, 225 Rooney Street, Santa Cruz (north of Hwy #1 at Morrissey Blvd. [MAP] ), where we will have circles for the discussion of ideas and dreams. Our goal is for this afternoon to lead to further effective actions for promoting peace in our own daily lives, our community and our world.

There is no charge for this event, however, donations will be welcome.

We look forward to seeing you and any friends you wish to bring. Please take the time to let us know if you will attend. RSVP via (Email) or phone 888-549-5922. This will allow us to plan properly for the right number of people.

Many of us have felt helpless to affect the painful situation in the world and we at WomenRise have discovered how powerful talking and meeting like-hearted people can be.

The original members of WomenRise have all experienced tremendous benefits through our conversation group and creating our initial Celebration for Peace event and wish the same for you. We hope you can join us.

In ever increasing Joy and Peace,

WomenRise for Global Peace
