March 12-16, 2016 Loretto Volunteers gathered with Loretto high schoolers, Community members, co-members, and thousands of other global activists at the annual UN Commission on the Status of Women in New York City. Volunteers learned about the work of Loretto's NGO at the UN and attended a wide range of panel discussions and high level dialogues centered around an issue at the heart of Loretto's mission: the advancement of women and girls' rights worldwide. Volunteers engaged with this expansive issue in different ways at the Commission - the beauty in its unique impact.
