Coexistence International Board Member Among 1,000 Nominated for Nobel Peace Prize

Dekha Ibrahim Abdi, one of Coexistence International's eight Advisory Board members, is among the 1,000 women nominated for the 2005 Nobel Peace Prize by Switzerland-based committee PeaceWomen Across the Globe. The committee combed the world to find 1,000 women to represent the millions of women who have devoted themselves to a future free of violence.

The work and stories of each woman are featured in a 1,000-page book sold through the committee's website, www.1000peacewomen.org.
