March News 2020 with We Said Go Travel:
I hope you and your family are #safeathome together and staying healthy. These past weeks have been challenging and have reminded me of being in New York City after September 11 when the travel company I worked for, Renaissance Cruises, went bankrupt in 8 days. I was disappointed to be out of work but felt grateful that I was alive.
The coronavirus outbreak has impacted individuals, families, our communities, companies, schools, universities and every country on our planet. I know that birthday parties, weddings, proms and graduations have been cancelled, that people could not attend family funerals and that celebrating Passover and Easter will be very different around our planet this Spring.
While I miss traveling, I know that I need to stay home and wait until it is safe to wander again around our world. I wanted to share some recent articles and past trips for inspiration.

I was able to attend the United Nations General Assembly 74 conference and the Gates Foundation Goalkeepers Conference in New York City in September 2019 when advocates came together to assess progress on the SDG 2030 goals as a representative of Ms. Magazine. I am so grateful to my editor, Carmen Rios, for encouraging me to attend and helping me make it happen!

These videos from my travel conferences in NYC in January 2020 seem like ages ago now that JAVITS CENTER will be used as a hospital. I hope that our incredible medical teams will assist all their patients to recover quickly.
