a Global Movement of Nonviolence
    is here!        

    There are a multitude of new movements attempting to
    unite with the purpose of implementing changes for the
    betterment of humanity.  Best of all, there is a group
    exhibiting the leadership needed to unite the people of
    the world and these movements.

    Six women Nobel Peace Laureates met May 28- 30,
    2013, to strategize about nonviolence, war, and women.
    They concluded by issuing a statement to the G8, the
    largest industrial countries in the world, to re-budget
    their military spending to humanitarian spending.  The
    Nobel Women statement is the ultimate request for
    nonviolence and economic change.  However, the only
    way the request can be successful is for the G8 to be
    influenced by a people movement of nonviolence.  The
    Nobel Women are the "vanguard" because they have
    focused on the highest of ideals which will lead to
    change.  Now what is needed is a "proactive" people
    movement to support the women leaders and give
    them political clout!

    THIS is the OPPORTUNITY of a lifetime.  The world
    can focus on the strength and wisdom these women
    are presenting and promote a Global Movement of
    Nonviolence, For the Children, (GMofNV), to support
    the women.  A GMofNV is designed as the umbrella to
    promote good will and peace enabling the people to
    work together.  The two uniting factors are nonviolence
    and working "For the Children."  

    The recent violence in the world has opened a door for
    an unprecedented opportunity for the people of the
    world to unite.  The people of world do not want

    The Nobel Women can make it happen!  

    The other main uniting element is the children.  The people in every
    country want their children to grow up in a peaceful, healthy environment.  
    The children are the commonality.  Working for a commonality can solve
    our differences.

    There is an urgency and a desire to heal the
    environment and work for humanity.  A GMofNV is designed
    to begin immediately

    The obstacles to change are so enormous
    that something different is needed.  A GMofNV is not
    just for women, it is for everyone.  It is about working
    for humanity.  Men are included.  
    The Civil Rights movement was led by blacks, but was
    for everyone.

    The Syrian crisis has created an unprecedented
    opportunity for the world to unite and promote a
    Movement of Nonviolence.  People all around the world
    are expressing they do not want violence or war.  
    This is the time to UNITE!

    A GMofNV can unite the people of the world

    To set in motion LONG TERM SOLUTIONS!

    Therefore, a GMofNV is designed to "Reach into Every
    Household" to illustrate the desire of all the people to
    stop violence.  Women will be asked to lead the way, to
    set a precedent, to illustrate "For the Children," their
    commitment to nonviolence.  This is  for women and

    The key is for people of every country,
    women and men, to influence their own
    government, all at the same time!  

    A two-part strategy is planned:

    The first part is for women to promote a:
    Global Movement of Nonviolence, For the Children
    (GMofNV) (Men are included)

    The second part, and "most urgent," is for women to:
    Convene Global Peace Negotiations

    Women will take the world stage and lead the way for
    “World Peace” by implementing UN RES 1325, the
    inclusion of women in all conflict resolution
    proceedings.  To accomplish this:

    Women will convene Global Peace Negotiations
    simultaneously with a GMofNV to defuse conflicts,
    starting with the Syrian Conflict and the upcoming
    US / Iran / Israel conflict over nuclear
    development.  A GMofNV will give the political clout
    necessary to influence the negotiations and
    implement an agreement.

    In one step, women taking a voice to “defuse” the
    most crucial conflicts, will give women a voice in every
    issue and the supporters of a GMofNV will also gain political clout.  
    This task will not be easy.  There will be sacrifice and suffering.  The intricacies are complex, but
    there is simplicity in setting a GMofNV in motion.  The key is getting it started!  It will then take on a
    life of
    its own.

    The success is predicated on non-governmental women leaders coming to the forefront.  I have
    networked with women leaders from around the world planting seeds for the past 11 years.  The
    next step is
    to have the Nobel Women facilitate women leaders coming together.  A main objective of the women
    leaders is to enlist people that ordinarily would not be involved – the masses that are busy with their
    lives.  As a strategist, I have a full plan designed for the women leaders to “Reach
    into Every Household.”  The key is working together “For the Children.”  The people in every country
    want their children to grow up in a peaceful, healthy environment.  The children are the
    commonality.  Working for a commonality can solve our differences.

    A GMofNV is a Gandhi / King like people movement that is different than any other movement
    because it includes a constructive phase - the prioritizing of programs “For the Children” and a
    philanthropic foundation for the children.  This phase will be the unifying force for everyone to
    participate and enable the raising of billions of dollars.  Wonderful organizations such as Global
    Women’s Action Network for the Children and Global Fund for Women would be the recipients of the

    For the best evidence, please see the speech by Malala, the schoolgirl from Pakistan who was shot
    by the Taliban.  This speech is incredible.  Malala is only 16 years old but profoundly professes the
    power of women and nonviolence.  Malala is the guiding light.  The world is waiting for something
    good to happen.  

    Women must take a political
    voice to change the world

    The key to implementing a GMofNV is women leaders
    coming to the forefront to take a political voice.

    After the killing of 20 children and six teachers in
    Newtown, Connecticut, Nobel Peace Laureate,
    LEYMAH GBOWEE wrote an article called, Rise Up,
    Mothers. It’s Time to End Gun Violence.  She wrote,
    “…I believe that now more than ever is the time for
    mothers to resist the culture of violence.”  

    To implement a GMofNV, women leaders would
    announce an initiative called a:

    CALL to WOMEN, a World-Wide Unity Campaign

    A Call to Women is designed to "CAPTURE and KEEP"
    the ATTENTION of the MEDIA and the world.

    Arun Gandhi, the grandson of Mahatma Gandhi, when told of
    a GMofNV, led by women, said, "It's about time."

    A Call to Women is not just about women.  Men are included.  This is
    a test for women and men.  Men should be courting women to prevent
    war and violence, if they truly believe they don’t want war.   

    A full plan is designed with administrative, marketing, funding,
    philanthropy, implementation, and follow-up plans.

    WOMEN have the opportunity to lead a GMofNV simply by "taking"
    the lead.  Men will agree with the concept.  A GMofNV is for everyone!

    The movement will attain POLITICAL CLOUT because of the size
    and the demands for preventing and stopping war (See World March
    Goals and GMofNV Demands.  The short term effort is to defuse conflict and the long term efforts are
    to change military spending to humanitarian spending.

    Once a GMofNV is started, it will take on a life of its own!  New leaders will come to the forefront.  A
    GMofNV will encompass all the movements -- Occupy, the Arab Spring, One Billion Rising, Birth 2012,
    Environmental movement, the Spiritual and the Religious.  

    The reaction of the people of the world to the shooting of Malala
    in Pakistan, is proof that the people want nonviolence.  The reaction
    of the NRA after the killings in Newtown, is proof that something
    different is needed to change a culture, such as a movement of nonviolence.  The rape of the woman
    on the bus in India, is proof that a
    "Global" Movement of Nonviolence is needed so everyone sees
    what is happening and will not feel their culture is being singled out.

    The mechanisms are in place and the plan is ready!
    The intricacies are complex, but there is simplicity in
    setting it in motion.  The key is to GET it STARTED!

    The Nobel Women have set the stage for a movement of nonviolence.

    The opportunity is at our FINGERTIPS to change the world,
    if we choose to.

    Peace and Love,
