The big day is almost here!

And no, I'm not talking about a wedding.

I'm talking, of course, about the big program we've been talking about putting on since July. One week, baby! (First though: Oh my God we have so much to do before then.)

I'll post the flier on here tomorrow when I'm at work, but this is what you need to know:

In March of 2007, Lauren Chief Elk, Lauren Bryeans and April Grolle rescued a young woman who was being gang raped at a college party. No one else at the party of more than 50 people offered to help the women. It was shocking, disgusting and most of all, alarming. From this experience, the No Woman Left Behind campaign was born. Come listen to Lauren, Lauren and April's story on MONDAY APRIL 13TH IN THE MU BALLROOM AT OREGON STATE AT 8 PM. This will entice you: there will be free food and punch and there's an outside chance we'll all be on TV if 20/20 comes to film. (Emphasis on "outside chance.")

More info -- and poster and pictures -- to come!
