2013 Women PeaceMakers Featured in Exhibit 'My Sister's Voice'
Wednesday, May 28, 2014
The 2013 Women PeaceMakers and the IPJ’s Dee Aker and Jennifer Freeman are featured in the photo exhibit “Notes to Our Sons and Daughters — My Sister’s Voice,” which opens at San Diego’s Port Pavilion on Broadway Pier on June 6. The exhibit “provides a space where the voices of women and their invaluable and necessary contributions to our common humanity can be heard,” as each photograph is accompanied by a note from the individual, “sharing a life lesson important enough to be passed on to the next generation.”
The peacemakers — from Bosnia, India, Pakistan and South Sudan — will be returning to San Diego for the opening of the exhibit.
The project was created to benefit the Center for Community Solutions, a nonprofit that provides prevention and intervention services for sexual assault and relationship violence survivors in the San Diego area.
