Get Involved with ADVOCATES FOR CHOICE!!

Are you passionate, concerned, or just plain curious about reproductive health, comprehensive sex education, and the like? If so, consider checking out the NIU student organization ADVOCATES FOR CHOICE (AFC). The Women's Resource Center is excited to affiliate with this up-and-coming NIU student organization.

So, what is ADVOCATES FOR CHOICE all about? AFC is affiliated with Planned Parenthood of Illinois and aims to "educate the university community about reproductive health and rights; to translate increased awareness into pro-choice activism on campus; and to serve as a coalition to partner to state, national, and international reproductive efforts."

If you're interested in learning more or checking out the group, feel free to comment on this blog. We'll be sure to keep you updated on important AFC information such as meeting times and fall semester events.

AFC will be showing The Education of Shelby Knox at the Women’s Resource Center on September 9 from 7-9 p.m. After the film, there will be a chance to discuss possible ways to organize around reproductive rights. Join AFC and the Women's Center in making NIU a more woman-friendly campus.
