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