Dear Sisters

This is an invitation meet as women who are working against violence against women. 

There are so many stories to tell from around the world within, an online network committed to sharing global information, raising women’s voices, solidifying relationships to stop violence and importantly, to create change. We are developing close ties with each other through this network and want to discuss global current priorities with other grass roots organizers.

The intent of calling a meeting is to strengthen reciprocal relationships and partnerships to create a broader network to speak out and act globally, nationally and locally to end violence against women. 

Through our combined voices we have been developing a powerful momentum. We are gathering strength and vision of possibilities in ways that we have never done before.

If you are interested in an afternoon or evening of stories, movement and strategy, please contact me. Also please feel free to forward this to anyone who might be interested.

WorldPulse Sisters, let me know if there is specific information you want me to be talking about. To many of you, you know I will be carrying your stories! Canadian sisters, lets strengthen the ties.

I am traveling across Canada stopping in the following areas.

Thank you Louisa, for your comment and support on this. I have been so encouraged every time I see photos of or hear stories of WorldPulse members meeting in person. I hope to find ways to strengthen our connections locally, nationally and globally. When even two of us meet, it is a celebration. That we can all now meet online is astounding. It is wonderful to meet you here.

With love in Sisterhood,

Cher Masoka, Je suis tellement content de recevoir votre message et de savoir que vous écrivez du Centre Mama Shujaa. Le travail que vous avez fait pour apprendre aux filles à se défendre et à croire dans le droit à l'indépendance, est si important. Oui, nous travaillons ensemble et nous sommes plus forts pour connaître les uns les autres et pour les centres tels que Mama Shujaa. Je suis heureuse de savoir que vous êtes là. Merci d'être en contact. Je pense souvent à vous tous.
