Walk For Congo Women- Chatham University
Saturday, April 14, 2012 at 9:15 AM (PDT)
Chatham University's F.A.C.E organization (Feminist Activists Creating Equality) is planning a 2-mile Walk for Congo Women on April 14th 2012, located on Chatham University's Campus.
The purpose of this event is to raise awareness of the conflict in the Democratic Republic of Congo where women are subjected to brutal gang rape and torture on a daily basis. All proceeds from this event will be sent to the Women for Women International's Congo program. WfWI's program works with the women of the Congo through direct financial assistance, job skills training, rights awareness education, and trauma counseling. More than 31,000 Congolese women have participated and benefited from the program's expansion in 2004.
Registration begins at 9:15 am and the walk begins at 10:00 am on April 14th. Registration for this event will be located in the Jenny King Mellon Library's parking lot (on Chatham University's Campus), which is accessible through Murray Hill Avenue.
Registration fee for this event is $10 dollars for the public, $5 for non-Chatham students, and free for Chatham students with a suggested donation of $5. Walkers are encouraged to ask family members and friends for monetary sponsorship for this worthy cause. Any further donations for Women for Women International can be brought on the event day.
Any one interested in participating in the walk is encouraged to register early and pay the event fee online at http://walkforcongowomenchathamuniversity.eventbrite.com/.
