Dr. Wright's Support of International Womens' Day

Dr. Wright joined women from area ethnic communities to participate in the International Women's Day event, held in downtown Harrisonburg last Saturday, March 10, 2018.  According to the United Nations website, the event had the theme #pressforprogress with the goal of uniting people to think, act and be gender-inclusive. Locally, the emphasis was also on inclusion of women from all ethnic backgrounds.

"I was there to support my friends in Harrisonburg's Kurdish community, as well as the many other groups that were represented there," says Dr. Wright.  "I was very impressed with the turnout."

"All over the world, women are suffering economic hardships and fear of physical violence.  I spoke with many women at the event who recently immigrated to the United States and expressed how thankful they are to be here in such a welcoming community," says Dr. Wright.
