Triota Celebrates Planned Parenthood’s 100th in a Big Way
October 21, 2016
Our URGE affiliate, Triota, at California Polytechnic University put a lot of work into Planned Parenthood’s 100 year birthday.
They kicked off the week with a Reproductive Justice Panel which included: Dr. Jane Lehr: Chair of the Women’s and Gender Studies Department, Associate Professor of Ethnic Studies, Triota Advisor, and scholar of the relationship between science and social justice; Dr. Sandi Clement: Assistant Professor of Biological Sciences, with a focus in eugenics and reproductive biologies; Dr. Jennifer Denbow: Assistant Professor of Political Science, with specializations in reproductive law and politics; Kristin Sanders: Lecturer of English, feminist writer, and organizer of Planned Parenthood Young Advocates.
They had a community brainstorm session following the panel, and a raffle and fundraising day. The chapter collected over $200 to present to Planned Parenthood as a birthday present.
