I've been selected to be a One Voice Summit Fellow!

A while ago I applied for a fellowship opportunity through The Sierra Club, a non profit organization "with the largest and most influential grassroot organization in America." The application was for One Voice Reproductive Health and Environment Summit in Washington D.C. 
The application also stated that the focus of the summit was the relationship between reproductive justice and ones environment.

I eagerly applied, hoped to be selected but cautious to not be too overly optimistic.

Imagine my surprise when I hear back from The Sierra Club via email on my way home from speaking in D. C that I have been selected to be a One Voice fellow!
I was so excited I wanted to cry and shout but I couldn't because I was on the 'quiet cart' on the amtrak. Hahah

I'm very proud and happy to say that I will be in Washington D. C in November doing what I love, again! I will be surrounded by like minded women, learning, advocating and speaking! I can not wait! The event is put together by Sierra Club, the Sexuality Information and Education Council of the United States (SIECUS), and Advocates for Youth.
 I can NOT WAIT!
