Nobel Peace Prize nominee to speak

Submitted By Shirley Gilbert

American Association of University Women member, philanthropist, author, and United Nations Association Global Citizen Jane Roberts will talk about the charity she started called Ò34 Million Friends of the Women of the WorldÓ on Sunday, December 8.

Roberts helped found her non-profit organization when the United Nations Family Planning Organization was defunded by the George W. Bush administration. She realized that millions of poverty-stricken women throughout the world would die during childbirth along with their newborns, and have no access to family planning or maternal health. She points out that if 34 million people each donate $1, we could all restore the lost funding. Come hear Roberts speak on the subject of ÒWomen and the Centrality of Reproductive Health to Gender Equality Worldwide.Ó

This talk is part of the sixth year of the AAUW Fremont One Book, One Community program sponsored by AAUW in collaboration with the Fremont Main Library. The idea of the OBOC program is to discuss, as a community, books that have changed the world.

Sunday, Dec. 8
3 p.m. Ð 5 p.m.
Fremont Main Library, Fukaya Room B
