The Beijing Circles movement will meet February 25-29, 2008 in the Chapel of Christ the Lord at the Episcopal Church Center in New York City as part of a series of regional gatherings to introduce the Beijing Circles Resource and allow practice using it. According to Episcopal Life Online:
The gathering, which coincides with the annual session of the United Nations for the Commission on the Status of Women (UNCSW) that brings together thousands of women from all over the world, will include reflection time, introduction to and practice with the resource, as well as presentations and interactive work.
“This is an opportunity to take advantage of the many side events being held in conjunction with the UN meeting, while providing the opportunity for us to practice using the Beijing Circles process to build solidarity with others and see appropriate solutions to issues women face around the world,” said Susanne Watson Epting, editor of the Beijing Circles Resource.
Beijing Circles are a tool which can help us educate ourselves and one another about the issues affecting women globally and then to advocate within our church and the world to bring about positive change.
