We had an AWESOME meeting this past Monday! We talked about our BAKE SALE as well as our plans for Breast Cancer Awareness and Domestic Violence Awareness Month (October) and the Vagina Monologues.
During our next meeting (Monday, October 11 at 7PM) we will be teaming up with the UH Women’s Resource Center to put up red flags on campus as part of our participation in the Red Flag Campaign. Info about the Red Flag Campaign: www.theredflagcampaign.org. Also if you want us to make you an SFO t shirt, please bring us a shirt next meeting and we’ll screenprint it for you! We are accepting donations for getting your t shirt screenprinted to reimburse Lizzy for the cost of the materials!
