International Awareness and Involvement
The MRAC International Awareness and Involvement committee strives to:
- Provide enriching educational, informational and cultural awareness programs for members of MRAC and members of the local community
- Inform and educate on issues that women and girls are facing around the world
- Provide a vehicle for members to travel to international sites to experience different cultures to increase awareness with what’s going on in different countries
- Increase global awareness and develop the global mindset of our membership and the local communities that we serve
- To gain broader knowledge and understanding of the local immigrant communities as well as international communities abroad
- To have an impact in the global community, with special emphasis on countries that span the African Diaspora
- To conduct service projects in partnership with global communities
The International Awareness and Involvement Committee is dedicated to developing community programs designed to provide assistance, relief, and a variety of resources to developing countries through strategic partnerships. Additionally, the committee seeks to foster local education and advocacy on contemporary social justice issues.
