These are the young professional woman chosen for the trip to Washington D.C. and NOW 50th Anniversary Conference! These young women work with other women in their professions. They are strong supporters of women's reproductive rights and health care. We are so happy to have received this funding from Planned Parenthood to provide them with this wonderful opportunity. These young women were enthusiastic and very involved during the conference. Each of them attended a variety of workshops and plenaries. Please come to our next meeting to discuss their experiences in D.C. and at the NOW 50th Anniversary.
