The Episcopal Women's Caucus and The Episcopal Church Women are partnering in an effort to raise funds to support the Episcopal Delegates to the United Nations Commission on the Status of Women, which begins in ten days. Here is Victoria Bell's story:
"Violence against women and girls has always been my passion both in feminism and in the church. After focusing on this topic in my research at the University of Michigan, I was delighted to accept a position as a shelter advocate and case manager at a Domestic Violence and Sexual Assault shelter - working with survivors and their families daily. I am thrilled to have been selected to be a part of this delegation to continue this important work. I look forward to gaining input from the Episcopal community as I contribute to our platform, learning from my fellow delegates during preparations, creating a network and being inspired by the work of conference attendees, and returning from New York with rich and exciting experiences to share! Thank you for your prayers and support"
A huge thank you to the Episcopal Church Women's Board of Directors who donated $1000.00 toward this effort. If you would like to donate please go to the Episcopal Women's Caucus website and make a donation through the "EWC Margo Fund" so that it can be designated appropriately: http://www.episcopalwomenscaucus.org/join.htm
