Happy International Women’s Day 2018! Now is the time to stand together for women worldwide,  so please join us in congratulating our 2018 Champions of Change.

Our Champions of Change campaign was introduced at the chapter’s 30th-anniversary celebration in October 2017. We are proud to announce the selection of our 2018 Champions of Change who have made significant contributions to women’s empowerment and gender equality in their professional and personal lives. These diverse champions have made an impact on a wide range of issues including women’s economic and political empowerment, gender-based violence, peace and security, and sexual and reproductive health and rights.

We appreciate the generosity of the team that captured the 2018 champions: photography by JJ Jimenez, hair and makeup by Francisco Valera, and styling by Shala Rothenberg. All artists are represented by Friends & Creatives, and we thank Dean Street Studios and Melatan Riden, our Executive Creative Director.

Author, nationally recognized activist on education reform, mentor and high school teacher in Union, New Jersey, named “Upstander of the Year” by the Human Rights Campaign.
