OC Cities for CEDAW


During 2015-2016 a group of volunteers came together under the leadership of the Orange County chapter of the United Nations Association and the Women's Intercultural Network to bring CEDAW to all 34 cities of the OC. The chair of the OC Cities for CEDAW task force is Rupsi Burman. This collection houses the documents prepared by the OC Cities of CEDAW taskforce such as the report, videos, and presentations made to City Councils.
