U.N. International Day of the Girl Child Celebration

Please join the Freedom Center and Dining for Women as we celebrate U.N. International Day of the Girl Child with a reception, international dinner, and screening of the acclaimed movie, “Girl Rising.” “Girl Rising”, rated PG-13, tells the powerful stories of nine girls from different parts of the world who face heartbreaking injustices but demonstrate that through education, the strength of the human spirit can prevail. Narrators include Kerry Washington, Salma Hayek, Selena Gomez, Anne Hathaway and Meryl Streep. The international dinner will include recipes from the countries of the girls in the movie.

Participants will have the opportunity to meet people from various organizations that support justice for girls and women worldwide, and to talk with them during the reception and dinner about what individuals can do to help.
