The Detroit Chapter of the US National Committee for UN Women was launched in November of 2013. As of the launch date, the chapter had about 25 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 chapter plans to sponsor educational events such as women-focused film festival scheduled for 2014.
