New Yorkers for CASA 2015 fundraiser

Last night an evening of robust conversation led by Peabody-wining journalist Maria Hinojosa of Futuro Media Group, hosted by Ambassador Sandra Fuentes at the NYC residence of The Consul General of Mexico brought together supporters of New Yorkers for CASA to celebrate 35 years of CASA providing community outreach, midwifery education, health care, scholarships for youth and domestic violence prevention in San Miguel de Allende, and influencing international policy makers, activists, and leaders globally while effecting positive change for women in Mexico. 

Distinguished panelists shared personal and professional reflections on the many paths to relevant involvement using models of private and public partnerships to create resilient methods of engagement in order to tackle the broad challenges for meeting the ongoing needs of adolescents and women in San Miguel de Allende and beyond.  

Monies raised this evening will be donated by New Yorkers for CASA for ongoing educational and programming efforts by CASA in 2016.
