Update: First Ladies of Africa

Yes! We are finally bringing you some photos from the reception we co-hosted for many of Africa’s first ladies. PREVENT HATE has been busy out in the field, building, meeting, engaging, and doing what we do best … preventing hate. So, in a good way, our lack of updates means that we are actively working on your behalf out in the community. But we are going to do our best to be consistent here.
 
Speaking of Africa, PREVENT HATE has been in regular contact with the Magama Foundation, which is First Lady Tandja of Niger’s nonprofit, about building a training program with them for Niger. Together with the Los Angeles City Department on Disability, our strategic partner with whom we are corroborating on this program, we are getting ready for our first assessment of one of Niger’s big projects. Once we have some relevant info. for you, we’ll post it. 

In the meantime, check out some great photos from our party on Monday, April 20, 2009 at Wolfgang Puck’s restaurant here in Los Angeles.
