Special guests who supported Blaker’s efforts included Oakland County Executive Officer, L. Brooks Patterson and the Mayor of Rochester Hills, Bryan Barnett. Nearly 90 guests including many community leaders and public officials attended the twilight affair that was held in the conservatory at the Royal Park Hotel.
The event was held to make the official announcement of the formation of the Metro Detroit Chapter of US National Committee for UN Women. The group will be dedicated to advancing and empowering women and girls around the globe. Lori Blaker will serve as the chapter’s first president.
“We are very excited about the level of community support we are receiving in the formation of this group. The Metro Detroit Chapter will provide a wonderful platform to educate and advocate for the empowerment and advancement of women. When women advance so do communities. The show of local support we are receiving is amazing,” stated Blaker.
The Metro Detroit Chapter will support the efforts of The US National Committee through advocacy, education and fundraising. The US National Committee (USNC) for UN Women is an independent non-profit, 501c3 organization that supports the mission of UN Women and social, political, and economic equality for women and girls around the world.
Members and supporters are men, women, and children in cities around the country who give their time and resources to support a world where women of all ages have access to education and employment opportunities, and sustainable livelihoods that enable them to live free of gender-based violence.
The group will host various events throughout the year and will advocate for global women’s issues and for UN Women in communities locally. The group will also work to provide leadership and economic participation towards the goal of ending violence against women.
