Advocates for Women of Edmonds Unitarian Universalist Church will host a benefit dinner and program for Women for Women International on Sunday, March 11, from 5-7 p.m. Dinner will feature dishes from Iran, Afghanistan, Bosnia and Herzegovina, and Kosovo — some of the countries where Women for Women International works with women survivors of war.
Deborah Bassett (Volunteer Ambassador for Women for Women International) and Carolyn Scott Brown (Director of Learning Resources at Seattle’s FaithTrust Institute) will speak on violence against women in countries at war.
Women for Women International provides women survivors of war and civil strife with the tools and resources to move from crisis and poverty to stability and self-sufficiency. Their motto, “changing the world one woman at a time,” reflects Advocates for Women’s philosophy that far-reaching change is possible through steady, incremental effort.
For dinner and/or child care reservations, please RSVP by Wednesday, March 7 at firstname.lastname@example.org. Edmonds Unitarian Universalist Church is located at 8109 224th St. S.W., Edmonds.[welocally/]
