Free and Open Meeting of Blue Ridge Virginia United Nations Association of USA
March 19 @ 3:00 pm - 5:00 pm
Girl Up of UVa is excited to partner with the United Nations Association Blue Ridge Virginia Chapter to present “Girls Through the Western Lens”, an inter-generational dialogue about how the West perceives third world countries. We will take a critical look at our misperceptions and discuss the United States’ actions in foreign countries that have presented challenges to the native culture. Girl Up’s members from the University of Virginia will give an interactive presentation about this topic and facilitate small group discussions with UNA members and UVa students to engage with the material. Girl Up is a campaign of the United Nations Foundation, and works to empower girls globally. Please join us to delve into an important subject that is now more pertinent than ever in the global world we live in.
