WIDEN THE CIRCLE: PARTICIPATE IN UN MEETINGS IN 2013

Through the Sisters of Notre Dame de Namur NGO Office, you are able to participate in major UN meetings. There is no fee to attend these sessions, but participants are responsible for their own transportation and room and board while in New York City. Funds are available to assist Sisters of Notre Dame de Namur from Latin America and Africa. If you are interested in attending a UN meeting in New York in 2013, contact Jean Stoner as soon as possible at SNDatUN@sndden.org.
