I was in session today starting at 8:30 am – my first day was spent attending sessions for over 12 hours and writing until 11pm and I haven’t even finished posting about yesterday’s sessions, let alone todays! There has been so much to learn and I am so incredibly grateful to be here.
I wanted to share with you a video post I found on UN Women.org of the opening session. It is so energizing – but I have repeatedly heard today at the Parallel sessions that we are women who gather, tell stories, cry together and then go home. The real need is for action when we get home … I am encouraged to return to a community awareness event about Human Trafficking!
