Walk to End FGM 2016

We know that October 15th is more than ten months away but we want you to save the date early on your calendar.  This is the largest awareness raising event held by Global Woman P.E.A.C.E. Foundation each year.

If you were unaware, on November 8, 2014, Global Woman P.E.A.C.E. Foundation started the Walk to End FGM on the National Mall in Washington, D.C. to raise awareness about female genital mutilation (FGM) in the United States.  The organization was not certain of how the idea of such an event would be received.  It was encouraging after a great turnout therefore the decision was made to make it an annual event.

Then on October 31, 2015 the organization held the second Walk to End FGM in Washington, D.C.  The event was endorsed by U.S. Maryland’s Governor, Larry Hogan.

Now the organization looks forward to the third Walk to End FGM on Saturday, October 15th on the National Mall in Washington, D.C.  Remember, Global Woman P.E.A.C.E. Foundation will award eleven deserving women on October 15th for their work and role against gender based violence, most especially female genital mutilation.  If you would like to see your choice of woman recognized with an award, send your nomination to info@globalwomanpeacefoundation.org.  Tell us why she should be recognized with a summary of her work and role.  In the subject line, indicate “Recognition Nomination”.
