Ottoo Brand Artivism-PADER’s Emilia A. Ottoo, Dr. Richard E. Ottoo, and Craig M. Joseph attended a reception for the Wangari Maathai Institute and Green Belt Movement at the home of Annie Auerbach and family in New York (pictures in the GALLERY). Founded by Wangari Maathai of Kenya, the first African woman to receive a Nobel Peace Prize for her work in environmental sustainability and grassroots organizing, this intimate event brought movers and shakers of global efforts for social change to the same place at the same time.
