We will have our regularly scheduled general meeting on Tuesday, 22 September at 7 PM in 203 Wheeler Hall. We will discuss two major upcoming events: the screening of Maafa21 (6 Oct.) and the Genocide Awareness Project (26/27 Oct.). There will also be an introduction to Dr. Malcolm Potts, a professor in our very own School of Public Health and the Bixby Professor of Population and Family Planning. Dr. Potts is a vehement supporter of abortion at the international level, to the point of extremism. He was instrumental in the legalization of abortion in his native UK, and is responsible for the spreading of the practice in many of the world’s poorest countries, claiming abortion to be an effective way to combat poverty, hunger, etc. Come learn more about one of the world’s leading proponents of abortion, and discover how BSL is planning to challenge him.
Also, BSL has its orientation session at the Concord Birthright Center this Saturday, 26 Sept. at 2:00. Please meet at the Downtown Berkeley BART station (outside the glass dome) at 12:30 on Saturday and bring $7.40 for roundtrip BART fare to and from Concord. This orientation is to teach you about the center and its services, and how you can be of help to them and the women they serve. (We will be volunteering there on a regular basis.) If you are a member of BSL’s Facebook group, you will have received an invitation to the Facebook event. You may also access the event here: http://www.facebook.com/event.php?eid=135832001157
