#NGWomen4Peace is a coalition of women representing all parts of Nigeria concerned with the current state of affairs and focused on ensuring that Nigeria remains a country of peace, prosperity and participation for all!
NGWomen4Peace was birthed in response to the growing wave of hate speeches and violence against the backdrop of the current ethnic tensions in the country, even as the government, at all levels, is tasked with the responsibility of promoting and protection of freedom of expression.
The group believes that Nigerians have a right to reside and conduct business therewith in Dignity and safety in any part of the country they so desire. It is our hope for a better Nigeria where every individual has equal opportunities to be the best they can be for themselves and their communities. Nothing good comes without hard work and sacrifice and thus we, the Nigerian women, declare that we can and must build the country of our dreams without sacrificing the lives of innocent citizens.
As part of its objectives to mark the 2017 Independent Day in Nigeria, the group is partnering with women in Nigeria and in the Diaspora to lead the coalition’s first ever #WhiteBlouseDayCampaign on Sunday, October 1st 2017. The #WhiteBlouseDay is a Social Media Campaign lead by the Nigerian Women for Peace (NGWomen4Peace) to reinforce the message of peace and hope in Nigeria. The Campaign seeks to notify Nigeria and the International community on Nigerian Women’s demand for peace and zero tolerance for violence and hate speeches.
’’We are encouraging women to wear a white blouse on our Independence day, October 1st; because we do not want to relive the negative consequences of the Nigeria Civil War in 2017!
