Metro Detroit Chapter

About Us

The Detroit Chapter of the US National Committee for UN Women was launched in November of 2013. Today, the chapter has about 56 members.  Like the national and other local chapters, the Detroit chapter offers it support to federal legislation and funding that seeks to promote gender equality and economic empowerment of women. The Detroit chapter will also work with local goverment officials to support legislation that promotes gender equity. 



The Metro Detroit Chapter of the US National Committee for UN Women is reaching out and asking all members and supporters to get involved in our upcoming events! 

We will share details on all events as they develop. Mark your calendars and plan to join us at the following events:
