Come hear activists from the Network of Afro-latinamerican, Afro-Caribbean and Diaspora women as they share their experiences and discuss their work to raise the visibility and improve the lives of women in their communities. It has been well documented that when women are empowered, communities prosper. They will also provide an interim report on their progress as collaborators in the MY World / World We Want 2015 campaign. With the launch of the International Decade of People of African Descent and the Sustainable Development Goals both in 2015 this will be a timely discussion.
This needs to be packed.
