Again this year, CARE’s supporters and advocates will gather in Washington, D.C., on March 7-8 for our annual celebration of International Women’s Day. Because your members of Congress are being asked to weigh in on several key issues related to women, girls and communities that live in poverty, we hope you’ll participate!
March 7: Join us on the eve of International Women’s Day as we kick off this year’s event with a special screening of the film, Pray the Devil Back to Hell, which will be followed by a panel discussion that I’ll host.
March 8: Team up with advocates from around the country for our one-day conference. You’ll learn about key legislative issues and take part in Congressional meetings. Come raise your voice and help educate policymakers about the importance of U.S. government investment in poverty-fighting programs.
We’ve designed the conference to be a little different this year. We’ll have a smaller group of advocates representing CARE on Capitol Hill, which will make for a more targeted and intimate experience. And we’ll be joined in spirit by thousands of CARE supporters who will stand with us from home. Together, our actions will make a powerful noise on behalf of poor people around the world.
We hope to see you soon.
