Welcome to the Miami Chapter of the U.S. National Committee for UN Women (USNC - UN Women Miami).
The Miami Chapter was officially launched in June of 2012 by a group of caring and dedicated Miamians who are highly committed to helping women and girls achieve their dreams of living in a world where they are safe, respected and valued.
The world is evolving rapidly and more people than ever before are enjoying new freedoms and economic opportunities. However, these freedoms and opportunities are still beyond the reach of millions of women and girls who still suffer great discrimination, violence and neglect.
UN Women was created to help women and girls break free form this generational cycle of violence and poverty. The issues are extremely complex and the solutions involve multi-level strategies that require funding and years to achieve.
The initiatives in Latin America and the Caribbean countries focuses on three priority areas of intervention which we see to be the strategic combination to overcome shared challenges: women's political participation and leadership, women's economic empowerment, and ending violence against women and girls.
Through local fundraising, education and advocacy, USNC UN Women Miami is proud to support these UN efforts. I invite you to be part of this amazing movement. Please go to www.unwomen-usnc.org to join and start receiving information about the meetings and events in the Miami area. Membership is open to everyone and participation in meetings and events is not required.
I thank you for taking the time to visit our website and read this letter. I hope that you decide to take a stand in support of women and girls and join our organization.
