We took part in the 5000 Flowers to 5000 Female Leaders initiative organized by Advocates of Silenced Turkey (AST). To make the mother’s day meaningful, our volunteers wrote letters narrating the tragic stories of the oppressed mothers in Turkey. These letters were sent to the prominent female community figures.

Silver Sage Foundation volunteers sent their letters to Carolyn Goodman (Mayor of Las Vegas), Susie Lee (the United States Representative for Nevada’s 3rd congressional district), Candace Kant (Professor of History at College of Southern Nevada), and Jacky Rosen (Former Representative for Nevada’s 3rd congressional district).

We hope that these letters will raise awareness on the problems women suffer in the hands of the current oppressive regime in Turkey. We would like to thank AST for this organization and to our volunteers who delicately wrote the letters.
