CARE Action!, Girl Up, United Nations Population Fund (UNFPA)
Shape the Debate 2017
CARE Action!, Girl Up and UNFPA are gathering at Busboys and Poets to discuss what to expect in 2017 and how we can continue to shape the debate around lifesaving investments for women and girls around the world. 2016 marked a contentious election season but also a banner year for advocacy on behalf of women and girls. Through the help of grassroots advocates, CARE and partner organizations helped to secure the tools for millions of woman farmers around the globe to feed their families through the passage of the Global Food Security Act, and achieved a historic level of bi-partisan support for ending preventable maternal and child deaths by surpassing 218 cosponsors for the Reach Every Mother and Child Act.
This event is free and open to the public.
