Superhero's for Change (more about Coming Out for Justice)

   Saturday, May 10 2014 ACT for Women and Girls will be holding their sixth annual free event. Located for the first year in downtown Visalia at Garden Street Plaza from 12 p.m. to 4 p.m.
   Amy Davis, program manger for ACT expects, "this year to be the best event yet and we are so excited." Davis hopes, "not only to raise awareness, but be the change agent that we so desperately need here (Central Valley). The organizations that come together for this event encompass the following social justice issues: reproductive justice, immigrant rights, LGBTQ rights, health access for all, justice for young families, environmental justice, and economic justice." 
   Leilani Price, Miss Gay Fresno 2013 performed with ACT at the College of Seqouis and has since, "been a support of this group and all that they do." Her along with the lovely ladies of Lotus, Trans-E-Motion, Fresbian Kings, B-Boys and many more will be performing live. 
   Davis is very excited that, "ACT along with the Teen Health and Pregnancy Prevention Alliance drafted a proclamation for Tulare County to declare May as Teen Pregnancy Prevention and Adolescent Sexual Health Awareness Month. It has been adopted and Tulare County Supervisor Phil Cox will open the event with a reading of the proclamation."
   This years theme "Superheros for Social Change" hope to accomplish just that, change! All ages are welcome to Come out for Justice tomorrow in Visalia from 12 p.m. to 4 p.m. for free. Find out more at the event page: https://m.facebook.com/events/728145117226016
