International Women's Day (March 8th)

This past International Women’s Day we applied our commitment to girls’ and women’s rights and wellbeing by participating in a direct service campaign, “Activate for Equality: A Day of Service for International Women’s Day.” This is a perfect guide to encouraging others to activate for the common goal of gender equality and more!

Get Involved: Cities for CEDAW

Cities for CEDAW is a nationwide, grassroots effort to encourage local governments to support the Convention on the Elimination of All Forms of Discrimination against Women (CEDAW) by way of local ordinances and resolutions. UNA Women members from across the country are already making progress in getting local governments to recognize the principles of CEDAW in places like Louisville, Washington DC and Kansas City. If you are interested in getting involved with the Cities for CEDAW movement, please email Rachel Pittman for more details.
