Call out for 16 Days of Activism Photos – December 2021 Soroptimist News

We need your 16 Days of Activism photos for the back page of the December 2021 issue. We will only be able to use about 8 photographs so the best ones will be chosen. Please send them to us by Monday 6 December 2021. As the 16 Days starts on 25 November 2021, we believe that this will give you enough time.

With your photograph please provide about 50 words in text explaining what you did. Thank you.

Explain your photograph in no more than 50 words.

Thank you, we look forward to receiving your items of Club News. The deadline for the February 2021 issue is 10 January 2021.

New! Letters page starting February 2021 Soroptimist News

Do you have a burning issue you would like to share? Do you have a question to ask?

Please send a letter of 60-80 words, by email to sally@sigbi.org, clearly stating in the subject line that it is a letter for Soroptimist News.

Please do not complain about your Club or the Organisation. Such matters have different outlets. Remember that the magazine is for non-Members as well, so topics may be something that’s happening in the world that you have a view on, or that you think Soroptimists should be tackling. You might want to know what SIGBI HQ is doing about a certain situation.

All letters will be reviewed by a panel. There may be reasons for not publishing a letter, in which case the sender will be informed. Points of view will be published as they are, and questions will be published with a response from the relevant Board member.

Thank you, we look forward to receiving your letters. The deadline for receipt for each issue is 8th of the month prior to the month of publication.
