Make It Right

After taking part in Junior League of Seattle’s summer reading challenge, Half the Sky by Nicholas Kristof and Sheryl WuDunn, do you find yourself wanting to learn more? Soon you have an exciting opportunity to join other Junior League of Seattle members do just that!

On Sept 18th Sheryl WuDunn will be speaking at the event “Make it Right: Turning Oppression into Opportunity” presented by Women of Vision (World Vision) at the Bellevue Hyatt Regency.

Junior League of Seattle is proud to be a sponsor of this event. We would love to have our members join us in learning more about powerful women’s issues, such as human trafficking, that will be an emphasis for our 2011 – 2012 year.
