Young Leaders Caucus: youth for gender equality

UN Women ED meets YLC

YLC with Phumzile Mlambo-Ngcuka after the Forum

The Young Leaders Caucus is an organization of young people, mostly young women, that was born during the NGO Forum.

As young people, they aspire for a world free of violence; a  world  of  peace,  where  democracy  thrives  and  women can  enjoy  and  exercise their  full  rights  as  citizens; a world  of  accountability  for  all  and  by  all.

But as young people, particularly as young women, they are also well aware of the many challenges they face: from street harassment to restricted reproductive rights; from domestic violence to political underrepresentation.srfx6o9ecpvawwkoqhfg

The Young Leaders Caucus wants to ensure that young people are recognized as active agents of change and that their voices are heard!

With this aim, they plan to send 7 representatives to the upcoming UN Commission on the Status of Women in March 2015…. but they need support!

So please see their crowd-funding campaign on Indiegogo….
and support their project!

With many thanks!
