Washington, D.C. November 6, 2009: Secretary of State Hillary Clinton addressed a gathering of over 400 women leaders assembled at the Ronald Reagan Building in the nation's capital from across the US for the first Annual Public Policy NoLimits conference. Amidst cheers, rousing applause and an extraordinary out pouring of enthusiasm, Secretary Clinton reiterated, "Women’s rights are human rights." Terry O'Sullivan, President, Laborer's International Union of North America highlighted Hillary Clinton's record of public service: a strong and relentless voice for empowering women worldwide; observing that, "She never gives up and never gives in."

Secretary Clinton asked women leaders to help every voiceless sister, daughter, and mother looking for an opportunity. since there are 'no limits' to what is possible in America. " I hope that you believe, as I do, that foreign policy matters, that public diplomacy matters, that standing up for the rights of people we will never meet very far away matters. And who does it matter to? It doesn't just matter to someone else. It matters to us as Americans."

Ann Lewis, a prominent national leader for women's rights and former adviser of Hillary Clinton is the founder of the non-profit organization "No Limits." Policy analysts observed that the conference is an effort to keep people engaged in making a difference much like those who were instrumental in making 18 million cracks in the glass ceiling..

NoLimits, currently a 38,000 member organization plans to expand its membership to 100,000 by November 2010. The organizers of the conference provided prominent seating to the IALC delegation members from Maryland, Virginia, New York, Chicago and D.C., appreciated the work of its volunteers in facilitating the conference and welcomed their continued support.
