NYC event March 11: Institute for Inclusive Security, Africa International Republican Institute, Sudanese National Assembly Women’s Caucus

Email received today from Sarah Wegner, Institute for Inclusive Security.

Subject: Event on Women and Sudanese Governance

Dear Ms. Jones:

I ran across your blog, Sudan Watch, and thought your readers might be interested in an event that my organization is putting together. The event offers a panel of experts discussing Women in Parlimentary Caucuses, primarily in Sudan:

WOMEN'S PARLIAMENTARY CAUCUSES: A TOOL FOR LEGISLATIVE ACTION
with

STEPHANIE BLANTON, Regional Program Director, Africa International Republican Institute

SAMIA SID AHMED HASSAN, Chair, Sudanese National Assembly Women’s Caucus

CARLA KOPPELL, Director, The Institute for Inclusive Security

Wednesday, March 11, 2009, 10:00am-11:30am
The Church Center, 777 United Nations Plaza, 11th Floor
1st Avenue and 44th Street, New York City

Description: Bringing together members of women’s caucuses in Sudan and elsewhere, this event will focus on the power of women’s parliamentary caucuses to advance legislative agendas. Drawing from experiences around the world, discussions will address forming a caucus, seeking and providing support, maintaining coalitions, and developing creative strategies for advocacy.

If you are in the New York area, I encourage you to attend. If not, perhaps your readers in New York would be interested if you could post the information on your blog.

Dear Sarah, Thank you for your interesting email. If I lived in the New York area, I would attend. I am in England, UK but would like to follow up on the event. Please keep me posted. Good luck on Wednesday. Best wishes, Ingrid.
