We Are Seneca Lake to Host Mother’s Day for Peace


The story starts in 1858 when a village romantic named Anna Reeves Jarvis orderly Mothers’ Works Days in West Virginia, with a evident idea of improving sanitation in Appalachian communities. During a Civil War, Jarvis continued her efforts by meddling women from their families to caring for a bleeding on both sides, and subsequently convening meetings to convince group to lay aside their hostilities. In 1872, Julia Ward Howe, author of a “Battle Hymn of a Republic,” due an annual Mother’s Day for Peace, and for a subsequent 30 years, Americans distinguished Mothers’ Day for Peace on Jun 2, until 1913, when Congress announced a second Sunday in May to be Mother’s Day.

To applaud and lift recognition of a 140-year-old holiday creatively famous as Mothers Day for Peace, a Rongovian Embassy in Trumansburg will horde a annual ‘Mothers Day for Peace 2015,’ a day of jubilee featuring performances by Singsong with Amy Puryear, Bronwen Exter, Toivo, Five2, Laila Belle, and Madd Daddy. Co-founder of New Yorkers Against Fracking and We Are Seneca Lake, Dr. Sandra Steingraber will be speaking. The eventuality will take place on Sunday, May 10 from 2 to 7:30 p.m. Admission is $8 per chairman or $15 per family. All deduction will be donated to We Are Seneca Lake, a informal transformation hostile a enlargement of gas storage in deserted lakeside salt caverns owned by Crestwood Midstream of Texas.

Event organizer Heather Hallagan explained that a impulse for a eventuality came as a outcome of what she felt to be a need to respect and work together as a village to “restore Mothers Day as it was intended, a holiday that celebrates women’s polite activism.” To a activists of that time, a tie between motherhood and a quarrel for amicable and mercantile probity seemed self-evident. As a result, middle-class women in a 19th century played a heading purpose in a abolitionist transformation to finish slavery, and in a following decades, they launched successful campaigns opposite lynching and consumer rascal and battled for softened operative conditions for women and insurance for children, open health services and amicable gratification assistance to a poor. “They believed that they gimlet a special shortcoming as mothers to caring for a casualties of multitude and to spin America into a some-more courteous nation,” Hallagan said, paraphrasing Dr. Ruth Rosen, a pioneering historian of gender and society. “Nineteenth century women dared to dream of a day that respected women’s polite activism. This is something that should not be forgotten.” Mother’s Day eventuality orator Sandra Steingraber further recalls progressing activism as impulse – from extermination to voting to polite rights – for her environmental work and wrote, “Imagine what we mothers could do if we brought that suggestion of loud, uncompromising, artistic rebuttal to a required plan of dismantling a hoary fuel attention and emancipating renewable energy, that is a hostage?”
