NGO CSW Forum Rally

Friday, March 16
12-3 pm 
Dag Hammarskjold Plaza (47 street between 1st and 2nd ave) 

The NGO CSW Forum Rally is an important way to celebrate the successes of the international women’s movement and the fight to end poverty and violence against women of all ages. The Rally demonstrates our efforts to promote a dialogue between NGOs and UN Member States during the Commission on the Status of Women held annually in March. It is the NGO CSW’s hope that the Rally fosters partnerships as outlined by the Sustainable Development Goals.
