Universal Children's Day

Our UNIVERSAL CHILDREN’S DAY Celebration will break the silence locally and globally about female genital mutilation and child marriage. We are bringing H. E. Ambassador Moushira Khattab from Cairo to celebrate UNIVERSAL CHILDREN’S DAY and her success in ending female genital mutilation and child marriage. 

Surprisingly, we have an estimated 500,000 victims in the USA.  At least 23 States do not have child marriage laws.  Our panel of thought leaders will share their outstanding campaigns to save girls from ongoing violence. Charming GenUN Members from the Lee Kane Dance Theater will perform a special choreographed story just for us.  We are especially grateful to the Hotel Zoe and CAL PAR RIO Travel for generous in-kind contributions.
