Bringing Spring 2012 Up to Speed

UT's Voices for Reproductive Justice has been active while planning for a successful student group.

On January 19, 2012 Liz, Megan, Katy, and Sawyer became voter deputies for Travis County. 

On January 26, Liz, Megan, and Katy went to Austin City Hall to speak in favor of Item # 17: Approve an Ordinance repealing Chapter 10-9 of the City Code, relating to notices at limited service pregnancy centers, and Item # 45: Approve an ordinance amending the City Code to add Chapter 10-10, relating to limited service pregnancy centers.

On February 7, Liz and Katy helped stuff Planned Parenthood Valentine's Day bags for the clinics, and for tabling on campus. Each bag included 6 condoms and 6 pieces of candy.

On February 12, UT's Voices for Reproductive Justice was officially registered as a Student Organization.

On February 14, Valentine's Day, VRJ tabled on the West Mall. Students were able to pick up the condom goody bags, register to vote, and also sign up for VRJ's e-mail list.
