New York Times coverage -- and progress in DC
Jun 24, 2014 — A lot has happened since my last update! Two weeks ago, I joined Rep. Joe Crowley and Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee as they sent a letter signed by over 50 members of Congress to the Obama Administration supporting the demands of our campaign. I was also able to meet with the Department of Health and Human Services along with other government agencies and policymakers. Everyone I talked to was interested in supporting our work, but we need to keep the pressure up to ensure that they follow through with action to protect girls.
