Refugee Task Force – AAWE

Thursday December 10th celebrated Human Rights Day and the 72nd Anniversary of the signing of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, established in 1948 by the UN. It was signed at the Palais de Chaillot, just a 10 mn walk from AAWE's clubhouse and as many of you know, Eleanor Roosevelt served as Chairperson of the drafting committee. If you are interested in following her inspiration like many of our members, join us and you can be an active campaigner of justice and human rights along side with 500 other women. https://www.aaweparis.org/
What we do for promoting human rights: Provide help for the needy and refugees, monthly mission lunch programs, participate in the actions of AAWE Community Wide Refugee Task Force, collect for food and clothing drives and be part of initiates for unique supportive activity for the community. Did you know that this declaration is the most translated document around the globe & available in over 500 languages?
This year’s Human Rights Day theme relates to the COVID-19 pandemic and focuses on the need to build back better by ensuring Human rights are central to recovery efforts.

Welcome to AAWE – AAWE

‘Tis the season for holiday shopping around the world! However this year with COVID 19 among us, many are choosing to 'shop local’, that is shop nearby, from friends, and online groups.
Even Black Friday Internet shopping is delayed one week in France to allow main street shops to sell their wares.

We are excited to be able to help you shop safely for the holidays! Visit www.aaweparis.org/aawe-store/ and shop from the safety of your own home.

Though we won't have our annual Winter Festival this year, our AAWE’s Handicrafters' have been hard at work creating unique and gorgeous crafts for our own online Shop at www.aaweparis.org/aawe-store/

We invite you to learn more about us and our members at www.aaweparis.org.

Please join our community for our wide variety of activities, many now on Zoom during confinement, if you're interested in books, film, crafts, living in Paris, professional networking, community outreach, cultural aspects of France and much more!
