Join the Johnson County United Nations Association for "Night of 1000 Dinners," a virtual community celebration of International Women’s Day, on Tuesday, March 8, 2022. The event will take place from 6  - 7 p.m. via Zoom and is hosted by the Johnson County Chapter of the United Nations Association (JCUNA) and 20 co-sponsoring organizations.

International Women’s Day honors the achievements and contributions of women worldwide. Our theme for 2022 is “People in Transition.” The Johnson County celebration will honor the Inside/OutRe-Entry Program, Iowa City Compassion, and Open Heartland. All three organizations are led by women, serve people in transition, and are advancing the UN Sustainable Development Goals in our community.

Proceeds will benefit these groups, plus the UN High Commissioner for Refugees.
