Sexual and Reproductive Health Day (SRH Day), held annually on February 12, is a national event intended to raise awareness of sexual and reproductive health issues and reduce the spread of sexually transmitted infections. February 12, 2016 will be the 13th Annual Sexual and Reproductive Health Day as established by the Public Health Agency of Canada.
Opt will celebrate SRH Day with our 3rd Annual SRH Day Breakfast. Every year, Opt identifies a Sexual Health Champion worthy of recognition for outstanding contributions in sexual health. Who is the 2016 Sexual Health Champion? We are delighted to announce the 2016 Sexual Health Champion is Katrina Pacey, Executive Director of Pivot Legal Society. A Sexual Health Champion is one who furthers Opt's Vision and Mission, embodies what sexual and reproductive rights are all about, and excites, informs, and inspires. For the last decade, Katrina has guided Pivot's litigation and campaign strategy, and has been the lead on Pivot's sex workers' rights campaigns. As Pivot's lead counsel on the Bedford case Katrina successfully argued the unconstitutionality of Canada's prostitution laws at the Supreme Court of Canada. Katrina's work increases awareness of sexual rights and her work on sex workers' rights is nothing short of inspirational (watch this moving short video to see what we mean).
Delicious breakfast, enticing door prizes, and of course, an organization and cause that you are passionate about — what could be better? Tickets are available now. Join us on February 12th to celebrate Sexual and Reproductive Health Day 2016!
