Join us as we welcome Isy Abraham-Raveson (she/they) for Finding Your Place in the Fight for Abortion Justice on Wednesday, December 7th at 7 pm EST over Zoom!
This workshop will be recorded and will be made available to everyone who registers for 7 days following the workshop.
About the workshop: The Supreme Court overturned Roe v. Wade. We are hurting, raging, grieving, dissociating, and surviving. Many of us feel an urge to “do something” but don’t know what to do. No one of us has to do it all, but we can each contribute somewhere.
In this workshop, participants will be supported through the process of identifying the skills and expertise they already have that can be put to work in service of abortion justice. Using a reproductive justice framework, we will explore six different action areas within the fight for abortion justice, choose accountability partners, and make individualized action plans for how we will engage in this struggle. We will discuss the barriers we feel to taking action, and how to overcome them. We are more powerful than we know, especially when we act together - let's fight for reproductive freedom.
By the end of this workshop you will:
Be able to identify at least one action area and at least one action step you can take in the fight for abortion justice that is a good fit for your skills and expertise.
Develop thoughtful invitations to others in your life that you want to do abortion justice work with.
This workshop is expected to run between 90 and 120 minutes.
Closed captions will be provided through Zoom.
