UN Chamber Music Society Concert in Celebration of World Day for Social Justice - in support of (In)visible Women at UNIS
20 Feb 2021 -  Sending support to homeless women in the New York community, on World Day for Social Justice, Saturday 20 February 2021 at 12:00pm EST, the UN Chamber Music Society of the United Nations Staff Recreation Council (UNCMS) will launch a virtual concert dedicated to helping thousands of women suffering from homelessness – through (In)visible Women, a non-profit organization based at the United Nations International School (UNIS). From job discrimination, to lack of affordable housing, for them and their children, homeless women in unstable living conditions face many challenges. These issues make the daily lives of homeless women in need, immensely difficult. (In)visible women is a nonprofit, student-led organization, committed to help in making our community a safer, happier and healthier place for women on the streets and transitional shelters in New York City.

During the concert, a message from Bill de Blasio, Mayor of New York City, will be delivered by Penny Abeywardena, New York City's Commissioner for International Affairs; as well as Dr. Dan Brenner, Executive Director of the United Nations International School. The concert will also feature performances by Patrick Jee, NY Philharmonic Cellist. Founded in 2016, the UN Chamber Music Society is dedicated to promoting the United Nations’ goals and values at large - through the universal language of music.
