No to Canadian Military Intervention in Haiti: Sign the letter.
Governments are hearing our demand! We protested outside the COP26 meetings. At COP27 there are three official events planned on the topic of militarism and climate within the conference. That’s a result of your efforts! Now is a time to further build the demand for action.
We’re holding a weekly discussion each of four weeks of the book Learning Life’s Lessons: Inspirational Tips for Creating Peace in Troubled Times with the author William Timpson as part of a book club limited to 18 participants. Bill will send each participant a signed hardcopy of the book. We’ll let you know which parts of the book will be discussed each week along with the Zoom details to access the discussions. Register.
It’s never too early to sign up for, or give the gift of, an online book club in a future month, giving yourself time to receive and read the book. Find them here.
WBW is holding an auction. We have been lucky to receive some very special donated items to include in an auction to help support our work but we need a few more to get it launched. Do you have something you could offer for us to include? Think artwork, gift cards (food related, services like spa treatments, online stores, etc), vacation home rentals, new electronics, etc. If you have ideas for a higher ticket priced item you would consider contributing to help raise money for WBW, please be in touch with Development Director, Alex McAdams, at firstname.lastname@example.org
