Think Globally, Act Locally: Leave No One Behind

Day of Study

Join us for "Think Globally, Act Locally: Leave No One Behind", a Dominican Study Day, on Saturday, January 27, 2018 from 10am-2pm in the Dominican Center.

Globally women and girls suffer disproportionately the crushing impact of poverty—a reality recognized by the United Nations. How can local communities and the Dominican family work to empower women locally and around the world?

Sister Margaret Mayce will lead discussions around this pressing issue. S. Margaret Mayce is a member of the Sisters of St. Dominic, Congregation of the Holy Cross, Amityville, New York. She is currently the Representative of the Non-Governmental Organization – Dominican Leadership Conference – at the United Nations. Margaret serves as Chair of the NGO Committee for Social Development, and is engaged in a wide range of issues, including poverty eradication, climate change and the plight of women and girls worldwide.

Tickets are $20 including lunch. RSVP by 1/19/2018 at http://bit.ly/2018StudyDay or call (510) 933-6360
