About: Throughout the world, women seek the means to nourish their children and provide for their families. In the poorest countries, providing for one’s family is more difficult, because women do not have the same civil liberties and rights including the basic right to own property. Each March, RDI draws together the Seattle community and international development leaders to celebrate International Women’s Day and to support efforts that strengthen women’s land rights, giving them a secure source of shelter, nutrition and economic stability.
Venue: Seattle Sheraton Hotel, Metropolitan Ballroom, Seattle
Organization: Rural Development Institute: RDI is a nonprofit organization of attorneys helping the rural poor in developing countries obtain legal rights to land. RDI attorneys are experts in land law and policy who work with governments of developing countries, foreign aid agencies, and other partners to reform land law and consult on land policy
