ETHIOPIAN SOCIAL ASSISTANCE COMMITTEE (ESAC) will be hosting its annual International Women’s Day Celebration in solidarity of support and advocating for Ethiopian Domestic workers of the Middle East. As you may or may not know, Ethiopian women in the Middle East have been abused or killed for years. This travesty is still prevalent and we are asking that you join us and our panel of experts to work towards eliminating this issue by advocating, creating awareness and justice for victims’ families.
On March 8th, 2015 this inaugural event will take place at 310 E. 42nd Street 1st and 2nd Ave in New York City. “As the need for support continues to grow, this month we honor all Women by giving back and making an impact on our local and international communities,” said Zewditu Fesseha, the Founder of ESAC. This month, throughout the year, we are seeing citizens of the Diaspora and Americans using the power of their voice to shed light on their own and each other’s well-being and making a real difference in the lives of women around the world. ESAC aims to mark the importance of equal rights and knowledge of the human condition. We can transform as well as abolish these brutal practices. The panel of speakers, as well as the host will share their personal associations to the movement, ideas for resolutions, and more. In brief, ESAC has held numerous seminars to discuss resolutions with expert panelists to set up dialogue with hosting Middle Eastern countries. We have tried to hold these countries accountable and to follow their international obligation regarding human rights and labor issue in their country. Women need to be accepted and respected in the 21st century so please join ESAC in putting this issue to end.
