Changing and Building the World's Perception of Women: A CALL TO ACTION
Women United First Annual Convention 2015
Women United is a coalition of women and men united together to transform the lives of those interested in a socially just society. Our cause is to empower women to change and build the worlds perception for both women and children. This is our Call to Action! We empower women to become more educated, entrepreneurial, more spiritual, as well as healthier.
We reach out to our youth in order to develop a strong, competent next generation through program development. We also empower our youth to chart their own paths to a healthy future, while discovering their own personal strengths and abilities.
Women United is designed to participate actively in injustices relevant to women in our plight with institutions that create oppression, powerlessness and hopelessness. We address systems so that they become empowering and sensitive to the individuals who have been effected. We employ human rights strategies to address the above philosophies and actions.
On Thursday June 25, 2015 through Saturday June 27, 2015, we will hold our first annual Women United Convention. The convention will be held in Gautier, Mississippi at the Gautier Convention Center. Our convention will include keynote speaker Sister Empress Phile' K.A.A. Chionesu, the founder/originator of the Million Women March and our First Annual Woman of the Year recipient, Ms. Denise Lasalle the Queen of Blues. This is a time for women of African descent to mourn/lament and heal from the atrocities in today's society.
We will address these issues by having working sessions and discussions facilitated by professional men and women.
Our convention will conclude with The African Women Gather Event at Gautier City Park.
Join us as we address the wrong doings of past and present to facilitate a better future!
