Bexar County Women's History Month Celebration & Proclamation

Tuesday, March 26, 2019

“Honoring Visionary Women: Champions of Peace & Nonviolence” Proclamation Ceremony Special Presentation: 2019 Pioneer Award Judge Rosie Speedlin Gonzalez Bexar County Court at Law No. 13 This year the National Women’s History Project will honor women who have led efforts to end war, violence, and injustice and pioneered the use of nonviolence to change society. These Honorees embraced the fact that the means determine the ends and so developed nonviolent methods to ensure just and peaceful results. For generations, women have resolved conflicts in their homes, schools, and communities. They have rejected violence as counterproductive and stressed the need to restore respect, establish justice, and reduce the causes of conflict as the surest way to peace. From legal defense and public education to direct action and civil disobedience, women have expanded the American tradition of using inclusive, democratic and active means to reduce violence, and promote the common good.
