International Women's Day, March 8th, is a day to celebrate the social, economic, cultural, and political achievements of women. The values of International Women’s Day are unity, celebration, reflection, advocacy, and action. This year's theme is #BalanceforBetter. The campaign will continue throughout 2019 with the goal of promoting a gender-balanced world. Collective action and shared responsibility are integral to building a gender-balanced world. Visit the International Women's Day website for information on how you can support gender equality in your community.

“If civilization is to survive, we must cultivate the science of human relationships – the ability of all peoples, of all kinds, to live together, in the same world at peace.” – Franklin D. Roosevelt

In a time where the news is full of stories about hate crimes, conflict, and prejudice, the importance of tolerance cannot be understated. The Global Alliance recognizes the dignity and worth of every human being and strives to fight for the fair and equitable treatment of all.
