We have received this article from the United Nations Association on the event that you may enjoy reading.  It was written by UNA-NCA Program Coordinator Emily Schaub.

In addition, Gautam Sharma, the United Nations Association Board Member, communicated the following to me that I wanted to share:

“We were fortunate to have over 100 attend the event. We have over 30 pledges, and we are still accepting pledges. We encourage you and others in your network pledge as well in order to continue the energy from this event. Please take a picture with the pledge card filled out and email it to unanca@unanca.org or share with us on social media: @unanca and join the conversation: #ParistoDC and#Goal7.”

In addition, he asks that if you have a chance that you fill out the event survey available here or at https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/NHTR255.
