Social Justice Advocacy as a Lenten Practice: Iraq War Anniversary and Women's Rights
3/22/2006
"Peace be within your walls and quietness within your towers.
For my brethren and companions' sake, I pray for your prosperity.
Because of the house of the LORD our God, I will seek to do you good."

--Psalm 122:7-9, Reading from the Fourth Sunday in Lent

On the 3rd Anniversary of the Iraq War – Presiding Bishop’s Statement
The Presiding Bishop released a statement on the third anniversary of the war in Iraq, which he concluded saying, "I continue to believe that the commitment to peace shared by the three great faith traditions who call the region holy is the only way to bring security and stability to the world God sent his Son to save." (Click here to read the full text of the statement.) We hope you will send this statement to your Members of Congress as a way of expressing our continuing concern for the ongoing tragedy of war and continuing loss of life.

Educate About CEDAW During Women’s History Month...And After
What does the United States have in common with Iran and Sudan? None has ratified the UN Convention on the Elimination of All Forms of Discrimination Against Women (CEDAW) – the only international human rights treaty that comprehensively addresses the fundamental rights of women and girls in political, legal, economic, cultural, social, and family life. In many of the 182 countries that have ratified CEDAW, the treaty has become a crucial tool for addressing the lives and well-being of women and girls. We will not press for a vote until we are sure we have the 67 votes needed to ratify but it is important to educate Senators as to its significance. Click here, to write your Senators today telling them of CEDAW’s importance.
