Announcing Two Upcoming Opportunities for Advocates in the U.S. and Beyond

I’m pleased to remind you of two upcoming opportunities for those interested in the field of sexual and reproductive rights and health:

  • Last week, we informed you of an upcoming advocacy training hosted by The International Women’s Health Coalition, in collaboration with the Sierra Club. Environmentalists and reproductive health advocates will gather to learn about climate change and reproductive health and human rights issues of local and global significance.  The deadline to apply to this exciting session has been extended to this Friday May 21 at noon. Those that reside in the San Francisco area are especially encouraged to apply. Those who would like to attend can please submit their application to Lori Adelman at, or to Kim Lovell at by Friday, May 21 at noon. The training is free, and expenses will be covered for accepted applicants. For more click here.
  • The Coalition for Sexual and Bodily Rights in Muslim Societies (CSBR) will hold its 3rd Annual CSBR Sexuality Institute 2010 from September 18th and 25th 2010 in Jakarta, Indonesia. Designed as a comprehensive curriculum on sexuality, sexual and reproductive health and rights with an in depth discussion on the linkages between research and practice, the CSBR Sexuality Institute offers a holistic interdisciplinary program combining history, theory, research and politics of sexuality with applications of advocacy, and fieldwork. The training typically attracts people from Asia, Africa and the Middle East. Applications are due no later than May 28, 2010. Click here for more information and to download the application form.

We hope you’ll take advantage of these exciting opportunities to hone your skills and become more involved in improving the lives of women and girls, in your community and worldwide.
