Dear Members of City Council,
The Boulder Branch of the Women’s International League for Peace and Freedom strongly urges you to approve the designation of Nablus as an official sister-city of Boulder. WILPF is a hundred-year-old organization working for peace and human rights around the world. We see the Nablus sister-city project as entirely in keeping with our goals. This project will help foster our understanding of one of the world’s longest-running conflicts. The work that has already been done by the Boulder group has produced wonderful citizen-to-citizen contacts and cooperation. It has helped the residents of Nablus and widened the horizons of Boulder citizens. An official sister-city designation will bring the group access to resources that will greatly aid its efforts and help assure that their work will be able to continue. We hope that you will vote in favor of making Nablus an official sister-city of Boulder. Thank you.
