Three of us will be speaking on panels as well.
Meghan Shalvoy will be speaking on the following panel:
Fake clinics, or so-called “crisis pregnancy centers,” target campuses and often use deceptive advertising practices to lure young women into their facilities, all the while they frequently provide misinformation about the risks of abortion and birth control. Come learn what you can do to expose fake clinics in your area and prevent them from deceiving students on your campus.

Dan Wald and I will be speaking together on the following one:
Sexual assault continues to be a major problem on college campuses. Many women are raped or experience attempted rape during their college careers. Unfortunately, many schools are silent on this issue, attempt to cover up the reality of the situation, or “fix” it with victim-blaming policies. Learn how to work with administrators to change the sexual assault policy at your school, and how to better engage the entire community in a holistic approach to ending the violence.
