Next we meet members of the 25-year-old international peace movement, Women In Black. Every month women in 150 cities around the world stand on various street corners in a worldwide network for peace and justice. Founded in 1988 by Jewish Israeli women to protest the Israeli occupation of Palestine, Women in Black has gelled, migrated, and mutated into an international voice. Listen to women from the Bay Area tell their stories about standing together every month for 25 years.

Join the vigils:
Berkeley Women in Black every Friday from noon to 1 at Bancroft and Telegraph
San Francisco Women in Black - 2nd Fridays from 5:15 to 6:15 PM at Market and Montgomery
Bay Area Women in Black every Saturday from noon to 1 in front of the Grand Lake Theater

Come march with Bay Area Women in Black on Black Friday!

We hope to see many of you on Black Friday, Nov. 28, 2014, in San Francisco! Meet at 11:45 at the Powell St. BART station for a march to Union Square. Silent vigil there. Theme will be "Who Profits from our Holiday Purchases" and will focus on BDS. Signs will be provided + bring your own as well. Let us know if you can wear a puppet. Wear black!
