To participate please join us at Whitewater Mesa Labyrinths, Glenwood, NM

The women of Ohio call upon the women of the world to stand with them in support of a better world for all children and the seven generations beyond them. Last May hundreds of thousands of women and girls, along with the men and boys they love, in 75 countries and on all continents of the world stood together in parks, on beaches, in churches, at graduation ceremonies, in their backyards and at school yards or anyplace they could find to stand in a global wave of humanity. “We dream of a world where all children have safe drinking water, clean air to breathe, and enough food to eat. A world where they have access to a basic education to develop their minds and healthcare to nurture their growing bodies. A world where they have a warm, safe and loving place to call home. A world where they don't live in fear of violence - in their home, in their neighborhood, in their school or in their world. This is the world of which we dream. This is the cause for which we stand.”

Bring your bell, your family and friends before 1pm to Whitewater Mesa Labyrinths, 355 Bursum Road, Glenwood, NM 88039 and participate in STANDING WOMEN.  At 1pm MDT on Sunday May 9 we will walk a labyrinth and ring our bells to signify the beginning of 5 minutes of silence and then ring our bells again. We have bells you can use. Whitewater Mesa Labyrinths will be open until dusk for you to walk all six labyrinths and a maze, if you wish. Admission is free or a donation towards upkeep.
