JOIN THE GLOBAL CAMPAIGN TO END POVERTY AND STAND UP WITH US ON SEPTEMBER 17!
STAND UP SAN DIEGO is one of many "Stand Up" events taking place worldwide from September 17 - 19 to demand that world leaders end poverty and achieve the United Nations Millennium Development Goals (MDGs). The MDGs offer us a roadmap to end poverty and its root causes. The eight MDGs include:
MDG 1| Eradicate Extreme Poverty and Hunger
MDG 2| Achieve Universal Primary Education
MDG 3| Promote Gender Equality and Empower Women
MDG 4| Reduce Child Mortality
MDG 5| Improve Maternal Health
MDG 6 | Combat HIV/AIDS, Malaria, and Other Diseases
MDG 7 | Ensure Environmental Sustainability
MDG 8 | Develop a Global Partnership for Development
189 world leaders adopted the MDGs as part of the Millennium Declaration, agreed to at the United Nations Millennium Summit in September 2000. IF YOU SUPPORT ANY OF THESE CAUSES, STAND UP WITH US!
The event will include a MARCH FOR THE MDGs and a STAND UP PLEDGE CEREMONY at San Diego City College (Google Map), and a CELEBRATION at the VIP Lounge of Basic Urban Kitchen + Bar, 410 10TH Ave. San Diego 92101 (Google Map).
STAND UP SAN DIEGO is hosted by the Young Professionals for International Cooperation of the United Nations Association San Diego (YPIC-UNASD).
