Fall 2014 Speaker Tour!

We are excited to announce the October 2014 Witness for Peace Upper Midwest speaking tour with a speaker from CACTUS in Colombia.

Cactus is a Colombian advocacy organization that encourages women flower workers to fight for their rights by offering legal advice and support programs. Cactus supports the women in workers' rights movements, promotes participation in local decision-making processes and supports professional and organizational skill development. Cactus has also recently expanded to create programs focused on youth and territorial management. We are excited that two speakers from Cactus will be touring with us this October (MN, WI, IA, KS, MO).
