On May 01, Meryl Streep attended the Women’s Refugee Commission 25th Anniversary Voices Of Courage Awards luncheon as a guest speaker. Held at New York’s famed Cipriani restaurant, the event honoured three remarkable former refugees: Liberian Nobel Peace Prize Laureate Leymah Gbowee, Sierra Leone’s Chernor Bah and Mary Tal from Cameroon. Pictures from the event can be found in the image library with more information, and additional gallery updates, below. Edit: Additional pictures from the Voices of Courage Awards have been added, plus a picture from last week’s Poetry & the Creative Mind with thanks to Joan for the heads-up.
Meryl took the time to pose on arrival with peace activist and one of the event’s honorees, Leymah Gbowee, as well as Women’s Refugee Commission board member Jocelyn Cunningham. The Women’s Refugee Commission is a research and advocacy organisation which aims improve the lives and protect the rights of women, children and youth displaced by war, persecution and natural disasters. Alongside the new additions, pictures from previous events have been uploaded as well. Many thanks for Claudia for sending in some of the Monte Christo Award additions.
