The Trans- Pacific Partnership

Want to learn more about the TPP, the largest trade deal ever? It seems likely the TPP will come up for a vote after the November election in the lame duck session. Attend a community conversation hosted by Dakota Resource Council members on Tuesday, October 18, 7-8:30 pm at Nativity Catholic Church,1825 11th St S in Fargo, in the Nazareth Room.

The U.S Catholic Bishops have prepared a list of guidelines that can be used to evaluate the TPP, or any other trade agreement, on how it aligns with Catholic Social Justice principles. Copies of this list will be available that evening.

Contact DRC organizer Tim Glaza for more information or questions at 701-202-6260 or at tim@drcinfo.com.

International Day of the Girl – October 11th

The International Day of the Girl is an international observance day declared by the United Nations to support more opportunity for girls and to increase awareness of inequality faced by girls worldwide based upon their gender. This inequality includes areas such as access to education, nutrition, legal rights, medical care, and protection from discrimination, violence and child marriage.

Improving the quality of life for girls not only affects the girls themselves but also the families and communities they will help to create. Many of those who work in global development are convinced that the best way to reduce extreme poverty is to educate girls.
