Last week, students from the Bixby Center joined students from all over California to lobby senators at the Capitol in support of SB 24, a fully-funded bill that would mandate California UCs and CSUs to provide medication abortion. Community colleges and private institutions may opt-in to receive funding grants as well.
Trust students! Do not allow barriers to their healthcare access!

Presentation by Bixby Summer Funding Award Recipient Kalee Singh
Kalee will present her analysis on the implementation of the Bixby Center’s youth center, based in the district of Musanze, Rwanda. The youth center model aims to utilize a multi-pronged approach–addressing both structural and social determinants–to improve the health and wellbeing of youth in Rwanda. The model, co- designed and managed by youth, strives to empower adolescents through the provision of comprehensive sexual education and linkages to high-quality, youth- friendly reproductive health services, livelihood skills, and general health information. The overarching goal of Kalee’s research was to develop a descriptive case study of the youth center model, documenting its effectiveness in addressing the health and wellbeing of adolescents and young adults in the Musanze district of Rwanda.
Join the OASIS Initiative (Organizing to Advance Solutions in the Sahel) and the Bixby Center for Population, Health, and Sustainability for a talk by Dr. Nouhou Abdoul Moumouni, Director of OASIS Niger and a champion for women’s empowerment and family planning in the West African Sahel.
