On March 20th UNA-NCA hosted a UN CSW parallel event discussing the U.S. Rejoining UNESCO and the Future of Women and Girls Education. The discussion touched on the history of the U.S. funding of UNESCO and the importance of ensuring congress meets our funding commitments to the UN and the essential nature of UNESCO in preserving culture heritage and history, as well as supporting education to women and girls. The speakers discussed ongoing programs that support girls education in Africa and African diaspora (through the UN Office of Human Rights Program for People of African Descent) which we've previously highlighted in our programming at UNA-NCA.

As advocates, we can continue to 1) educate our communities about the importance of UNESCO 2) call on congress to fully fund the UN and UNESCO 3) advance policies at the local level that support teachers, accurate and holistic teaching of history, and provide support for equal access to education for girls.
