Women for Women International
March is Women’s History Month. In keeping with the theme, the League of Women Voters of Berkeley Heights, New Providence & Summit is sponsoring a program highlighting young people who wish to empower women. Women for Women International is a non-profit humanitarian organization dedicated to financial, educational and interpersonal support of women survivors of war, poverty and in justice.
Ellie Rogoff, the 2016 LWV-BHNPS's Citizenship Award recipient, decided to start a club at Summit High School. Find out why this young woman decided to chose Woman for Woman International as the reason to start a club, what she had to go through to get the club approved at the school and what they do to help women regain dignity and hope.
The program will be held on Thursday, March 2 at 7:30pm at the Summit Free Public Library in the Hickok Meeting Room. This program is free and open to the public. Light refreshments will be provided. Bring your daughters and join the sisterhood!
