International Women's Day in Chicago

Madame Jacqueline Morette with Oxfam Staffers and volunteers after meeting with aides at Senator Mark Kirk's office.  Madame Morette had a busy day during her visit to Chicago.  After the visit to the senator's office she also presented at a public health class at the University of Illinois, Chicago, and was the guest of honor at the Oxfam co-sponsored International Women's Day event that evening.  This was just one of Oxfam America's 100 events in 100 days held to celebrate the 100th anniversary of International Women's Day. The Chicago Oxfam Action Corps was honored to have her share her message with our guests that evening. She stressed that further involvement and resources are still needed to help the women's co-operative achieve their goals of improving livelihoods in her rural community.  Please join us in asking your member of Congress to Support the International Affairs Budget.  Ask them to vote against to cuts to funding for U.S. foreign aid programs – programs that help the world’s most vulnerable communities. Follow this link to tell your senators:
