Although this isn’t an official announcement, I’m excited to ‘leak‘ that I’m working on a new project:
I’ll be working with the National Council of Women of the United States to celebrate their 125th anniversary event at the United Nations in New York City on October 25, 2013. The NCWUS is the oldest non-sectarian organization of women in America. Officially founded in 1888, the organization traces back to the anti-slavery movement and is now an accredited non-governmental organization (NGO) with the Department of Public Information.
If the name of the organization sounds familiar, it’s because it was founded by Susan B. Anthony (introduced women’s suffrage into the United States), Clara Barton (founded the American Red Cross), Julia Ward Howe (who wrote the Battle Hymn of the Republic), and Sojourner Truth (the first black female suffragette). The preamble written by these women in 1888 reads:
We, women of the United States of America, believing that the best good of humanity will be advanced by efforts toward greater unity of sympathy and purpose, and that a voluntary association of individuals so united will best serve the highest good of the family, the community, the state, do hereby freely band ourselves together into a federation of all races, creeds, and traditions, to further the application of the Golden Rule to society, custom, and law.
While my role is technical in nature, I will be working as part of a team that includes Brian Moran (Brian Moran & Associates) and Fields Jackson, Jr. (Racing Toward Diversity Magazine), both co-chairs of the anniversary event. Feel free to reach out to them directly with any sponsorship opportunities you can contribute to this historic event.
Assisting the NCWUS celebrate 125 years of service to women is an honor and I hope to serve the organization well.
