Original Million Woman March 15th Year Anniversary: "From March To Movement" Special Announcement
Original Million Woman March 15th Year Anniversary Press Conference and Town Hall Village Meeting will provide the official announcement for the long awaited MWM "SWEET 16" Reunion and National "AMANDLA" (Power) Convention coming in October 2013
By: National MWM
The historic Million Woman March (MWM) is the largest gathering in the world of women anywhere ever. This makes MWM not only Black History and Women's History, but also World History. While many historians, scholars, etc. have failed to take note of this fact and MWM other great accomplishments, the founding and national MWM has assured that its history will be amply documented and disseminated by way of the establishment of the Million Woman Movement Historical Preservation Society, The MW Ministries and other related units and affiliates.
AND NOW, On October 25, 2012, (marking the 15th year anniversary)
The Thurs. October 25th Press Conference will be held at Willie Williams Community Center (the first Black Fire House in Philadelphia)
Information will also be provided regarding major MWM programs and Special Projects such as the National Campaign for the "Elimination of Violence and Abuse of Women and Girls of African Descent" the "IN THE BLACK" & BBB-Co (community economic advancement, business & finance development, and wealth building)g Programs, and the National/International Human Rights Project (with a Convention being held in Benin, West Africa in December 2013); to name a few
Initiatives that the now official Universal Million Woman Movements have already begun includes the building of an “independent school for girls”, the establishment of the MWM Africana Women's Institute & Culture and Arts Center, the development of a community based Holistic Health and Healing Center, and a program that will provide training and employment for women of African descent who are in or trying to come out of abusive and destructive situations; as well as those who have been formerly incarcerated. Specific projects have also been formulated to address some of the issues and concerns regarding young girls (Black/Africana females between 7-17), and to assure that this is done as qualitatively and successfully as possible, MWM is declaring the year 2013 The National "Year of The Black Girl" (YO-TBG) . Programs for this project include the Lil' Sistahs and "Saving Our Daughters" program (Rites of Passage/Sistoring Scholarships, etc.) and the "Diamonds in the Ruff" program to name a few. The YO-TBG Campaign will also connect groups and organizations, nationwide, that are involved in positive youth development work and programs and that want to link and synchronize with others similar and like minded entities who are also serious about helping to change the present destructive paradigm that has targeted, particularly young females of African descent, but also our children and young adults in general.
While it has taken more than 12 years to formulate and fine tune our programs and Special Projects in order to properly implement solution oriented actions regarding pertinent issues that effect our families and communities daily such as: Racism and Sexism in the 21st century, Gender Related Violence and Abuse of Women & Girls, Human/Natural Rights issues, Incarceration, Homelessness, Environmental concerns, Gentrification/
