I'm the president of the Center for Health and Gender Equity (CHANGE) and I'm joining my staff in the 20 for 20 campaign to raise friends and funds for CHANGE--not just because it's my job, but because I believe in the work that CHANGE does for women and girls globally.
Twenty years ago, at the International Conference on Population and Development in Cairo, Egypt, the US government joined more than 170 countries and made a commitment to promote women’s health and human rights globally through its development assistance. CHANGE was created at that time to hold the US accountable to those commitments, and we continue to do that today.
For 20 years, CHANGE has led campaigns to hold the US government accountable to the commitments made in Cairo. We have led fact-finding missions to ensure that US taxpayer money is being used to promote women’s human rights. And if we find that it is not. We bring that information back to Washington to change policies. We train advocates and bring the voices of women from the global south to Washington to speak truth to power with policy-makers in Washington so that US policies are based on what women need, and what works on the ground--not political expediency.
To mark our 20 year anniversary, CHANGE staff have joined toegther to strengthen our efforts so that in the next 20 years we reach more women and girls with even greater impact. Please join us!
