briefing through the UN Department of Public Information for
members, fellowships and grants recipients, and alumnae.  Three

Development Programme (UNDP) who spoke on topics including
Beijing +20 and how UNDP initiatives aid women and girls. The

Rights, spoke extensively on the topic of human trafficking.
Members also met AAUW’s UN Youth Representatives—Ammie Lin,
Antoinette Gingerelli, and Katherine Moreira, and heard from our
Main Representative, Melissa Guardaro and AAUW staff.
