    Welsh Women's Peace Petition 1924

    My name is Lowri, I am the Community Outreach Officer for North Wales for the Women’s Peace Petition Centenary Project funded by The National Lottery Heritage fund. The project is a year long celebration of the 390,296 Welsh women who signed a petition for peace, and presented it to the women of America in New York in 1924, asking them to use their influence on the American government.
    During 2023/24, the project will be running events and activities across Wales to Remember their story, Rejoice in the centenary and Realise their wishes by inspiring future peace activists.
    We are in the process of creating partnerships with organisations and groups across Wales to deliver funded activities and events to promote the project and would love you to be involved. These activities could be talks, workshops, educational events, mini exhibitions and more… we want to be flexible in our delivery to ensure we are producing exciting and engaging activities, so we would love to hear your input on how best to collaborate.
    From November we will also be looking for lots of volunteers to transcribe the names on the petition, so that future generations can search the names of the signatories. Perhaps your organisation could help us with this ambitious campaign?
