BENEFITING: FORWARD GLOBAL WOMEN
Forward Global Women fosters and nurtures the development and growth of women leaders to become active peacemakers promoting co-existence. We envision a world where women are actively engaged in conflict-resolution and peacemaking. Forward Global Women is a 501(c)3 nonprofit that convenes and trains women leaders in political and civic life from the MENA countries of Jordan, Palestine, Israel, Tunisia, Egypt, Morocco along with USA women. Forward Global Women exists to foster the development of nonviolent peacemakers by providing women leaders and activists with the opportunity to study peacemaking and co-existence and to put nonviolence into practice for the sake of the well-being of all. Our objectives are to create a space for women from the MENA (Middle East/North Africa) Region and the US to have an inspiring convening of connections, conversations and relationship-building through a dialogical engagement with old and new paradigms. Also to transform conflict into more sustainable, peaceful relationships that are based upon principles of justice and equality to build support networks that cross geographic, political and cultural boundaries. Finally to facilitate new understandings and pursue solutions to political and social problems for which no answers currently exist.
