With only 36 days to the Walk To End FGM (#walk2endfgm), we urge you to register at your earliest convenience. Register at https://www.globalwomanpeacefoundation.org, click on “Register to Walk”, and be a part of a memorable event of its 6th year. Join us on Friday evening, October 18th when we collaborate with the Milken Institute of George Washington University in collectively “Honoring the Lawmakers”. Since January this year, 6 U.S. states have criminalized FGM, so we will give recognition to the lawmakers. In addition, Dr. Morissanda Kouyate of Inter-African Committee will lead our Panel Discussion with a Keynote Speech, a silent auction sponsored by the Washington Wizards and Southwest Airlines, and the honor of our 9 Awardees. Then on Saturday, October 19th, Pennsylvania Representative, Thomas Murt will deliver the Keynote Address on the National Washington Mall, prior to our 5K Walk. This is going to be a memorable weekend. Please join us.
