Event Details

Too often, teen pregnancy sustains the cycle of poverty for young parents and their children, inhibiting the educational and economic opportunities for which Women United advocates. As community leaders, we refuse to accept this reality and know that if properly supported, young parents can thrive in their academic and family lives.

Join United Way of the Bay Area's Women United leaders, the Board Policy Committee and local community experts for an engaging discussion about how parenting, education, and social and legal supports can disrupt the cycle of poverty for young parents.
Jane Adams, Senior Health Student Reporter with EdSource, will moderate the discussion.

Panelists include:
  • Diane Beetham: Director of Public Health Nursing, San Francisco Department of Public Health
  • Jennifer Chou: Reproductive Justice Attorney, ACLU of Northern California
  • Charlene Clemens: Consultant, Teen & Family Services
  • Veronica Garcia: Policy and Social Justice Division, San Francisco Human Rights Commission
Event co-sponsored by:
Women United Steering Committee UWBA Board Policy Committee
