No better time than Mother’s Day to renew your VOW membership
Mother’s Day was started in 1870 by Julia Ward Howe, who issued her Mother’s Day Proclamation as a call for women to join in support of disarmament. With this in mind, I hope that you will support Canadian Voice of Women for Peace – our membership is still only $35.00 or pwyc. VOW offers an opportunity to donate monthly through our PAC program which will withdraw from your bank account directly.

4 sessions Thursday May 10, 17, 24, 31, $100 (or sliding scale, please inquire), limit of 12 participants, trainer Lyn Adamson – for more info –, 416-731-6605
