One of the areas that unites the entire Swerling Milton Winnick team is giving back. That’s why we’re proud to support Save the Children, an international non-governmental organization that promotes children’s rights, provides relief, and helps support children in developing countries.
In addition to investing in the promise of education for children of war and conflict, we value the chance to interact with the organization whenever we get the chance. On Nov. 2, we had a great opportunity to do just that.
Save the Children sponsored a wonderful event at the Downtown Harvard Club. It featured Cokie Roberts and other notable speakers who share the goal of aiding girls and boys fleeing unfathomable horrors around the world. Janet Wu, an Emmy Award winning political journalist and investigative reporter and co-host of WCVB’s “On the Record,” hosted the event while Ms. Roberts, a senior analyst for NPR and ABC News, Emmy Award winning journalist and author of six New York Times bestsellers, moderated a round table discussion on The Promise of Educating Refugee Children. The discussion featured child advocates Mary Mendenhall, associate professor at Teachers College Columbia University, and Dan Stoner, vice president for education and child protection at Save the Children.
We also enjoyed the live music! Thank you, Save the Children, for the wonderful work you do. Thanks for having us – proud to work with you!
