The National Alliance of Women's Organisations is delighted to hold this exciting exploration into how the Sustainable Development Goals can be used to create real change in the UK, specifically to aid us in ending violence against women and girls. With many thanks to Roberta Blackman-Woods MP for chairing this event, and Jess Phillips MP for sponsoring us to hold it in Parliament.
This event will also be part of a day's lobbying together with our afternoon event hosted by Baroness Verma in the House of Lords. We look forward to a day's celebration and activism as part of the culmination of our Young Women's Alliance Advance initiative. Young women will be centre stage, having the chance to use the knowledge, confidence and capacity gained throughout the programme to share their experiences, views and hopes for how they think the SDGs must be used to achieve gender equality.
We are excited to engage in this critical and timely event with all those interested - from those in the charity sector, activists, those interested promoting the rights of young people and women and girls, and passionate people of all genders and ages.
Further details of speakers to be announced shortly! Until then take a look at YWA Advance or @NAWOYouth for more information, or see our website for more information on recent events in our SDG series, see our activist's guide and indicators report events at the relevant links.
If you haven't attended an event in the Houses of Parliament before, it is worth bearing in mind that there can be delays in getting through security so you may wish to budget a bit more time for this, just in case. Thank you for your interest, and we look forward to seeing you there!
