In the spring of 1924, a small group of Welsh women, led by Annie Hughes Griffiths, came to America to encourage the United States to embrace world peace. They had been motivated by the burdens their nation endured from the resulting and lasting effects following World War I. Their message: no more war in the world.

It was endorsed by a petition signed by almost 400,000 Welsh women! Moved by their war time experience and faith, and their hope to convince the women of America, and among world leaders, President Calvin Coolidge and the American leadership, to set the example, and to embrace this message.

In March, we will be celebrating the centennial anniversary of this momentous event!

It will begin at 4:00 p.m. on Saturday, March 9, with a concert expressing the Welsh spirit, performed by Côr Cymry Gogledd America / North American Welsh Choir, under the direction of Dr. Mari Morgan, joined by choristers who are coming from across North America. This FREE event will be held at Grace and Holy Trinity Cathedral.

Then, at 1 p.m. on Sunday, March 10th, an informative live audience presentation will be held with presenters from Wales at the National World War I Museum. There will also be a special closing by the North American Welsh Choir.

We hope you can join us in this important event.
