Women Building Connections Gala Dinner

April 28, 2015

An intergenerational event connecting women committed to a new and better world – a world without weapons or war.  Guest speakers are the Canadian Voice of Women for Peace (VOW) Honorary Board of Directors – Jean Augustine, Judy Rebick, Kim Phuc, Mary Wynne- Ashford and Metta Spencer.

Kim Phuc, tells an inspiring story of courage and forgiveness unlike any other. Once an iconic child symbol of war, she is now an honorary VOW board member and UNESCO Goodwill Ambassador for the Culture of Peace.

VOW’S youngest member, 16 year old photographer/filmmaker Kasha Slavner says “VOW gives me an opportunity to connect with amazing women who are so committed to creating a peaceful planet.  It is their stories that motivated me to create the Global Sunrise Project.”
For 55 years, VOW has advocated tirelessly for a world without war. We encourage women to exercise responsibility for the promotion of world peace and justice. Through education, taking part in the democratic process of decision making, and cooperating with women throughout the world to create the mutual respect and understanding necessary for the peaceful resolution of international conflict.
