Honoring Sandra Fluke at the Multi-Generational Brunch
On Sunday, 200 pro-choice women and men braved New York City's chilly temperatures and rainy weather and came out for the Third Annual Multi-Generational Brunch, hosted by NARAL Pro-Choice America's Future Direction Committee.
Mothers, daughters, and granddaughters came to the event to stand up for their pro-choice values. Personal stories were the theme of the day, and each story shared was a reminder of two things: the importance of living out our personal beliefs, and the importance of making our voices heard.
Roz Jonas (pictured with her daughter, Lauren) and Dana Weinstein moved guests to tears with their personal abortion stories.
Nancy Keenan, president of NARAL Pro-Choice America, presented Sandra Fluke with the Stand Up for Choice Award for her amazing work speaking out for birth control in the face of a panoply of personal attacks against her.
Sandra shared with the audience the importance of every woman telling her story. All of the stories highlighted the importance of standing up and speaking out to make your pro-choice voice heard.
