We would kindly ask Unions and related organization to consider purchasing the Calendar for their members or for their staff and in that way help promote solidarity with Palestinian women workers and advance the work of these women artists who contributed to a project that promotes peace and solidarity.

See the Calendar’s cover page above or go to Sindyanna’s website to see more details.
