Feminist Majority Leadership Institute 2000 a Success!

From July 6-9, 2000, forty-three student feminist activists representing forty-one campuses nation-wide gathered for the fourth annual Feminist Majority Leadership Institute in Arlington, Virginia to learn pro-choice organizing strategies. The intense and exciting four-day Institute involved workshops on topics ranging from current issues in Reproductive Choice, to How to Fight the Right-Wing Backlash, to How to Build a Feminist Resume. Participants quickly put study into action by organizing a highly successful pro-choice Get Out the Vote pledge drive and rally held Saturday, July 8 in front of the National Museum of American History in Washington, D.C. Inspired by the words of FMF President Eleanor Smeal, and armed with skills in leadership and organizing, participants left prepared to implement feminist activism upon return to their campuses.
