Refreshments provided for an event on:

Promoting Human Rights of Women and Girls Globally:

The Intersection of Social Work and Family Planning Services

This event coincides with the United Nations mobilization campaign:


Join millions of people around the world who will take part in the STAND UP campaign

to demand that world leaders end poverty and achieve the

MDGs in advance of the MDG Summit from 20-22 September 2010.

What are the United Nations Millennium Development Goals (MDGs)? How does poor access to reproductive health and family planning services affect families in the US and globally? How does all of this apply to us as social workers and what do international social workers do?

We anticipate facilitating a lively, dynamic conversation to encourage you to reflect on these issues and how they affect your work as social workers. Discussants include staff and members of the National Association of Social Workers with international experience and faculty of Howard University School of Social Work. A short film highlighting these issues will be shown.

Please RSVP to Soojung Kim:
