|Enter the One Voice Summit Essay Contest|
The One Voice Summit essay contest is an opportunity for U.S. based youth activists ages 16-24, interested in the intersection between climate change and reproductive and sexual health and rights.
The One Voice Summit consists of a two-day training and a policymaker education day for youth activists who are interested in environmental and reproductive justice issues domestically and globally.
The contest deadline is September 28, so enter today, or learn more after the jump!
The Summit provides a forum for participants to gather and share information relevant to the intersections of sexual and reproductive health and the environment through a human rights framework; build skills on working with the media, educating policymakers, community organizing, and advocacy; and discuss and commit to at least three actions that they will take in their own communities to advance reproductive and environmental justice.
Finally, the Summit culminates with a policymaker education day, during which participants meet with their Members of Congress to request support for domestic and international policies supportive of evidence-based sexual and reproductive health programming.
We invite advocates ages 16–24 to tell us in an essay of no more than 500 words about the potential roles youth can play in advocating for a more just and sustainable world, where all people have access to sexual and reproductive health services and a healthy environment. Please describe how you will use your experience from the One Voice Summit to advocate on these issues in your community in the coming year.
