The official beginning…

This is the official beginning of my journey from being officially notified the other day with an email stating,

We are pleased to tell you that you are invited to attend the 57th Session of the the United Nations Commission on the Status of Women (CSW) from March 4-15, 2013 as part of the Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.) delegation. Participation in the CSW provides the opportunity to advocate with this global policy-making body where representatives of UN Member States gather to “evaluate progress on gender equality, identify challenges, set global standards and formulate concrete policies to promote gender equality and women’s empowerment worldwide.”

I started making a journal on Facebook under Road to United Nations.  Unfortunately, Facebook is having some of its quirks (and I have reported it many times with no avail) so I have created this blog to carry it on from this day forward, although, because I have many other fb pages that do work within the same common theme of awareness of domestic violence, sexual assault, gender mutilation, human trafficking, etc. issues that I may forward articles/posts of interests on those pages to the Road to United Nations fb page in those circumstances.

I have also created a fundraising page that I have entitled, Domestic Violence Leadership Roles, through GoFundMe.  Please feel free to contribute to my cause to help me get where I know that I need to be, if you are able to do so.  Even a $5 contribution can help immensely!

Hoping you will enjoy my journey and will contribute additional ideas/suggestions that will aid in my journey.  May we all see the end of domestic violence, etc., at the end of our journey process on a global basis (we can hope, right?)!!

    To bring you up to date with my Domestic Violence Voices background, I probably should share that I am also vying to be a delegate at the 57th Session of the United Nations’ Commission on Status of Women and Children in March 2013.

    Below are more details on that on my other site ( which delineates the cause and effects of that journey to, during and after my role as a delegate at the United Nations.
