Every year Planned Parenthood brings a group of teens, staff and activists to the Capitol to meet with legislators and discuss current issues affecting reproductive healthcare. One Step A La Vez had the opportunity to send two youth representatives to Sacramento to attend Capitol Day.  We participated in the legislative process by meeting with our representatives, attended a health education fair and workshops on creating change and taking action. This was a fun and educational event and gave us teens an up-close view of how we can all make a difference when we stand up for what we believe in!
