Women’s Leadership Project 2008-2009

This year’s cohort of the Women’s Leadership Project (WLP) has been involved in organizing around health literacy, media literacy and women’s rights. Highlights include taking the lead on launching Mix It Up Day for cultural diversity, organizing a Day of Remembrance for youth, attending an HIV/AIDS awareness conference for women and girls and educating GHS students and adults about sexual assault and sexual harassment through meetings with administrators, workshops and Denim Day outreach. WLP president Clay Wesley is also a foster care youth advocate who has traveled to Sacramento to lobby for foster care legislation and a participant in the Women of Color Media Justice Initiative’s radio production training at KPFK radio.
