Empower Peace produced the second annual STAND UP program. STAND UP was created to educate, motivate and empower young people to actively promote positive social change and combat bullying in their schools and communities. The second annual Stand Up Rally took place on Thursday, November 29, 2012 with more than 5,000 middle and high school students and teachers representing over 165 schools coming together at the Tsongas Center in Lowell to take a stand against bullying. Stand Up 2012 was the largest anti-bullying rally ever conducted in the US!
Women2Women 2012 alumnae have been reporting in to us on the status of their action plans. Each year the young women that attend the program are asked to develop an action plan that they will continue to work on upon returning home. The action plans range from programs on women's rights, education, women's portrayal in the media and health care.
Women2Women 2012 was a tremendous success. Over 75 young women leaders from Europe, Asia, Africa and North America participated. The conference took place from Saturday, July 7 to Sunday, July 15, 2012 at Wheelock College in Boston.
This year we welcomed participants from Algeria, Bahrain, Chad, Egypt, Iraq, Israel, Kenya, Libya, Morocco, Saudi Arabia, Spain, and the United States of America.
We need your help! Our goal for 2013 is to raise enough money to sponsor 25 young women to participate in the 2013 Women2Women-America leadership conference scheduled for Boston this July. For every $4,000 we raise one future leader can participate in this life-changing experience. Please help us reach this important goal. Every contribution, no matter its size, is important! Donate today and help us set an emerging young leader on the road to success!
