On Tuesday, March 8th, representatives from the RPCV-NENY group had the pleasure of staffing a table at the International Women’s Day event held at the Opalka Gallery in Albany, NY. The theme for 2016, was “Pledge for Parity”. The event was Co-sponsored by the International Women’s Day Committee, the Sage Colleges, ICCR and the Opalka Gallery. Different food vendors offered samples of their specialties. Many people enjoyed the edible delicacies. Local organizations also participated. The Keynote Speaker was Albany Mayor, Kathy Sheehan. Journalist, Rosemary Armao presented the opening remarks. This event was a perfect opportunity for people to come together, network, share their passions of altruism and food and celebrate women. Below is a screenshot of the participants at the event.
