AGI at the Youth Advocacy Summit in Brussels
February 16, 2005
Twenty-five-year-old Chinué Richardson, senior public policy assistant at The Alan Guttmacher Institute (AGI), will join 50 young people from the United States and Europe for the first-ever Euro-American Youth Advocacy Summit.
For two days, the 50 youth participants--25 from the United States and 25 from Europe--will gather in Brussels, Belgium, to work on issues concerning young people’s sexual and reproductive health and rights.
"I am particularly excited by the prospect of furthering the work of AGI—and the reproductive health community as a whole—by making connections between state and federal laws and policies," Richardson said.
The summit is coorganized by the Sexuality Information and Education Council of the United States, Advocates for Youth, Marie Stopes International and YouAct, the European Youth Network on Sexual and Reproductive Rights.
