First timer!!

Last month I was on the show for the first time. I loved it! So I went back last night. I was a little nervous but I am very proud of what I am doing. Most of all, I am proud of the work that CAF does. The leadership group is changing my life in ways that I would have never imagined. I will be going to Philadelphia next month for a conference. I'm really excited!!!! Remember, abortion is nothing to be ashamed of. It' s YOUR right and Your choice! Peace:-)

1Year & Counting

April marked my 1 year anniversary of being in the My Voice, My Choice Leadership Group. A lot has changed for me within the last year. I'm back in school, I have a great job, an a new attitude towards life. I've appeared on the front page of the Tribune in January for the Roe v. Wade anniversary, I've hosted Chicago Abortion Fund's talk show,(which airs every last Wednesday of the month@8:30p. on channel 21) spoken on a panel at UIC , I've had the amazing opportunity of traveling to Amherst,MA for the Reproductive Justice Conference, not to mention the conferences in Philly and Ohio coming up.......What can I say,....... This movement has moved me . Being a leader is no easy task, because to lead is to serve. I'm grateful that this group has ALL the tools to assist me taking the lead.
