Alexis Bledel, America Ferrera to speak at 2012 Social Good Summit

Co-stars of “The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants” America Ferrera and Alexis Bledel will be reuniting at the 2012 Social Good Summit, sponsored by Mashable and the United Nations in New York City, September 22-24.

According to Hispanicize, the actresses will be sharing experiences from their recent trip together, through the ONE organization, to Honduras to witness how women and girls are fighting to pull their families out of poverty.

The aim of the three-day conference is to unify people of developed and undeveloped countries, in person and online, to discuss how the sharing of innovative ideas with technology can build a networked society which can help solve the world’s challenges as one global community.

On September 24, the Social Good Summit’s ongoing conversation will continue in China and Kenya.

Ferrera will also be appearing in the PBS television series Half the Sky, which looks closely at the struggles of women in 10 underprivileged countries fighting for change.
