No, this is not a joke, at least in the literal sense.
Got a fantastic idea for a campaign but not sure where to start? Wondering how you can use the tools of activism to make your project the most effective it can be? Social justice advocate Sandra Fluke will help you harness the power of activism and/or advocacy with this strategy session. You bring the expertise on your issue, and Sandra will bring her sharp strategic mind and national experience.
From the beginning, Sandra Fluke has devoted her career to public interest advocacy. She came to national attention in February, 2012, when
Congressional Republicans prohibited her from testifying, instead hearing from a panel of men on a question of women’s health. She then testified before the House Democratic Steering and Policy Committee on the need for women’s own private insurance to cover contraception. Despite personal attacks, she has since spoken about this and other issues of concern to women and young people across news outlets, and has addressed the Democratic National Convention. Currently, she serves as a surrogate for the President in his reelection campaign, and speaks to audiences across the country. Her work has been honored by the American Federation of Teachers, American Constitution Society, Center for Reproductive Rights, Planned Parenthood, NARAL, National Partnership for Women and Families, NOW, Women’s Campaign Fund, and others.
