WAMM Wants you!

We are looking for new WAMM board members. Board members meet 10 times a year on the third Tuesday evening of the month. Board members assume responsibility for overseeing a program, activity, or committee of WAMM. Board members are elected at the Annual Meeting (AM) in March and serve a two-year term beginning on the date of the AM (to be determined). Applicants for the board are asked to create a short, one-paragraph biography that will be printed in the AM program.

Pray the Devil Back to Hell - Movie

Second Monday Movie, March 11, 2019, 7-9 pm at 4200 Cedar Avenue in Minneapolis.

Pray the Devil Back to Hell chronicles the remarkable story of the Liberian women who came together to end a bloody civil war and bring peace to their shattered country. Thousands of ordinary women, both Christian and Muslim, came together to pray for peace. Armed only with white T-shirts and the courage of their convictions, they demanded a resolution to the country's civil war. 

In honor of Int'l Women's Day, the remarkable story of Liberian women, both Christian and Muslim, who came together to end a bloody civil war and bring peace to their shattered country. A compelling testimony of how grassroots activism can alter the history of nations.    

"This film could change the world." --Michael Moore

Connecting the dots. . . A chance to discuss the film follows the showing.
