Photos: campaigning in New York

Here are some photos from yesterday’s 1,000 Days event in New York. I spoke at the event alongside the US secretary of state, the secretary general of the United Nations and others.

I also presented Dr David Nabarro, UN special representative on food security and nutrition, with our Unheard Voices – Women Can’t Wait petition of 10,000 signatures. 

On receiving the petition, David Nabarro said: 

I welcome Concern’s Women Can’t Wait campaign, which has the support of over 10,000 signatories worldwide. Hunger is one of the most important challenges facing our world today, and it is essential that we acknowledge the central role women play as farmers, mothers, and providers of food to their families. All of us have a responsibility to make sure that by 2015, significant progress has been made in ending hunger for good.
