Join CARE at the 2013 CARE National Conference & International Women's Day Celebration. For three days in March, participants will gather in Washington, D.C., to honor advances girls and women have made – and ask Congress to help build on these successes.
They’ve made some exciting changes to our program. A portion of the film, Girl Rising, now will be screened at the diplomatic reception on March 5. Please check out their program for more details and newly confirmed speakers. Program highlights include:

During the event, attendees will see a portion of the 10x10 film, Girl Rising, featuring a CARE program in Peru, which will be followed by a brief discussion.
- March 6: On the first day of the conference, participants will learn more about critical issues that poor people grapple with each day and how CARE's making a difference.
