Time and place: Wednesdays, 5 – 6:00 p.m southwest corner of Broadway and Canyon.
About: The Boulder WIB vigil began early in October, 2001, in response to the United States’s begining war in Afghanistan. We stand on Wednesday afternoons from 5 to 6 PM on the southwest corner of Broadway and Canyon. This location is close to the Boulder downtown bus terminal and also close to bus stops along Broadway. There is also a parking lot that is accessible from Canyon, just west of the Canyon and Broadway intersection. Early organizers and supporters of WIB Boulder include Ann Goldstein, Kathy Partridge, Ellen Starker, Kathleen Saunders and Anne Marie Pois. The following organizations have been strong supporters of the vigil and were helpful in the beginning of the Boulder vigil: Womens International League for Peace and Freedom (WILPF- Boulder), Rocky Mountain Peace and Jusicte Center, and Raging Grannies. We hold 2 large banners proclaiming: Women in Black for PEACE. Some participants also hold thier peace flags which display the traditional peace sign. Some of us have black tee shirts identifyling us as from Boulder, and proclaiming: Women in Black Wage Peace. We welcome all to the vigil, asking men to, stand behind the women.
