October 11th marks the United Nations observance of the International Day of the Girl Child, to recognize girls’ rights and the unique challenges girls face around the world. The International Day of the Girl Child focuses attention on the need to address the challenges girls face and to promote girls’ empowerment and the fulfillment of their human rights.
As part of the "interfaith perspective" webinar series the Parliament's Next Generation Task Force is celebrating the critical importance of empowering girls in order to foster a more peaceful, just, and sustainable world with the webinar, Planting Seeds of Hope: A Multigenerational Conversation on Empowering Girls.
When: Thursday, October 15th at 11am EST
The webinar is the third in the series and will feature the participation of organizers at the grassroots level discussing their experiences in empowering girls locally and the lessons we can apply in our own work. According to the UN, progress for adolescent girls has not kept pace with the realities they face today, and COVID-19 has reinforced many of these gaps.
Join the conversation and learn how the interfaith movement is fostering bold action on gender equality.
