ECDC Celebrates Gender Equality on International Women’s Day

To celebrate International Women’s Day this year, ECDC organized a panel discussion about women empowerment. The panel was made of former refugees from Afghanistan and Somalia, including Farooq Karimi, Hussein Mahrammi, Benish Nejrabi, and Kadra Bashir. They each shared their thoughts on the importance of gender equality. The discussion was a live facebook event. We invite you to watch it below.

ECDC staff also participated in the day by sharing their own views. Check out what they had to say:

Thank you to ACC DC Metro’s Women’s Group for participating in today’s event and for their commitment to becoming self-sufficient in their new community.
