November 25th, 2008

New York City, N.Y.The Humpty Dumpty Institute (HDI) through its “U.N. Across America Program”, will bring a delegation of senior U.N. diplomats to Salt Lake City November 30-December 2, 2008. (List below) The delegation will arrive in Salt Lake City Sunday afternoon, November 30. Included among their activities while in Salt Lake City are a meeting with Lt. Governor Herbert, a roundtable with students and faculty of the University of Utah, a lunch and program at LDS’ Humanitarian Division, and touring the cultural sites of the city.

Ms. Constance Milstein, Chairman of HDI, says “HDI’s ‘U.N. Across America” program is designed to show U.N. diplomats areas throughout the United States they might not have the opportunity to visit. We believe that it is extremely important to expose them to the economic and cultural vibrancy of Los Angeles and give them a chance to forge ties with the city’s business, academic, and cultural communities”.
