I just want to make sure any of you in Seattle or Washington sate know about the NARAL Youth Leadership Summit event coming up. I'll be doing two panels, but it's a whole-day event with loads of cool stuff, and it's also totally free, for the whole day.
(FYI, Scarleteen user Elizabeth/surferchick has also had a hand in organizing this.)
On Saturday, November 3rd from 10:00am-5:00pm NARAL Pro-Choice Washington will offer our annual "I HEART Choice" Youth Leadership Summit at the University of Washington HUB. This is a free event for high school and college students. Lunch will be provided.
Workshops and Panel discussion will teach you:
• Skills for talking about choice, being an activist, and mobilizing your peers • Why Washington State gets an A+ for access to reproductive health and rights and how we can keep it that way • What the anti-choice movement doesn't want YOU to know about your body and your rights.

Thanks Heather! And Im super looking foward to your panels!
And I hope to see some of you all at UW on Saturday!
It going to be an amazing day of panels so that you can learn more about choice issues. I know I myself will be in a panel called "What the anti-choice movement doesn’t want you to know about your body: HPV, EC & Sex Ed" and theres alot more exciting panels too! I've been working on organizing this for NARAL for the past few months so all my hard work is finally going to debut and hopefully educate a whole bunch of youth about choice issues <3
Hope to see yall there!
