Advocacy Training Via URGE

I highly encourage teen parents who are in Alabama, Ohio, and the Bay Area in California to apply to this opportunity via URGE.

"We are excited to host 3 Reproductive Justice Leadership Institutes (RJLI)  this fall! RJLIs introduces students throughout the country to the reproductive justice movement, build networks of student activists in our priority states, and assist students who are interested in creating or strengthening a campus reproductive justice chapter.
The Leadership Institute is a weekend-long conference and is open to young people (age 18-25) throughout the state.
The weekend includes conversations about reproductive justice at the intersections of race, class, gender, and faith, the political landscape in the state and strategies for campus organizing. Twenty-five students will be accepted to each Institute. URGE covers the cost of travel, lodging and most meals.
