Global Child Refugee Crisis: An Evening with Caryl Stern
June 11, 2019 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm$25 – $35
UNICEF is a global leader on children’s rights and works in over 190 countries and territories to help the world’s most vulnerable children. UNICEF’s engagement on issues regarding children on the move is built on the premise that a child is a child, independent of his or her migratory status.
You are invited to join Global Washington for an evening of conversation with Caryl Stern, President & CEO of UNICEF USA, to discuss this urgent crisis facing children around the world. Serving in this position for 13 years, Stern has an intimate understanding of the situation children on the move are facing around the globe. More recently, she has spent time in Rohingya refugee camps in Bangladesh, visited communities living under armed conflict in the Central African Republic, and has traveled to Mexico’s southern and northern borders. With her extensive field experience and over a decade of leadership at UNICEF USA, she will address this simple yet difficult question: What is the humanitarian response to this global migration crisis?
