Presbyterians to attend the 60th UN Commission on the Status of Women

Presbyterian News Service: Rick Jones, LOUISVILLE

Thirty-three Presbyterian women, including 14 young adults, will attend the 60th Session of the United Nations Commission on the Status of Women in New York this month. The delegation is organized through a partnership involving the Presbyterian Ministry at the United Nations, Racial Ethnic & Women’s Ministries, and Presbyterian Women in the Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.). This presence is possible because the Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.) is accredited to the United Nations through the Economic and Social Council.
