Recognising that the location in New York will limit participation, the coordinating group hopes that some members of the Child Rights Caucus will be able to attend the meeting. Because space may be limited, please e-mail Jo at email@example.com by February 15 if you are interested in attending. In addition, a Strategy Day for the Child Rights Caucus will be arranged prior to the Special Session itself.
