South Sudan continues to experience on-going violence that since the conflict began in 2013 has forced some 3 million people to flee their homes. The breakdown of Peace Deal signed in 2015 has allowed for the emergence of new armed groups which further exacerbate the security and stability situation in the country. Women and girls, in particular, face the threat of physical and gender-based violence.
What are some ways that women in South Sudan are responding to and contributing to peacebuilding processes?
This event will feature two guest speakers from South Sudan, Agnes Wasuk Petia, National Women’s Program, South Sudan Council of Churches and Awak Hussein, Youth Coordinator, South Sudan Council of Churches.
This event is free and open to the public. If you plan on attending, please send a note to [email protected]
Refreshments will be provided.
