The team at the Council for Economic Opportunities greatly valued being the final stop for a delegation from India hosted by the Cleveland Council on World Affairs. Leaders from more than 12 organizations devoted to human rights and empowering women, especially those who have suffered domestic violence, learned how the team at CEOGC reaches women living in poverty and helps them to dream and achieve.

Ms. Beena Pallical Johnson, National Coordinator, Campaigns, National Campaign on Dalit Human Rights said that the final visit was “brilliant and deeply inspirational. Seeing a woman of color leading an organization devoted to helping people move out of poverty is a perfect way to end our visit to the United States.”
