Inter-generational Gathering: Reproductive Justice
May 16 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pmFree
One way in which we’re commemorating our 40th anniversary is by hosting a series of Inter-generational Gatherings. Our hope is to bring together a diverse group of women to discuss and unpack some of the issues impacting us today.
Folks are encouraged, but not required to dive into a different article or essay for each gathering and together we explore where we’ve been as Maine women, where we are, and where we hope to be in the next 40 years.
This month’s IG Gathering topic is Reproductive Justice Across Our Lifespan. Maine was fortunate enough to have life-long activist & SisterSong co-founder Loretta Ross visit us twice over the past 6 months – if you were in attendance at either event you likely have a sense of what Reproductive Justice is. Check out this clip to learn more about this powerful framework:
This is a potluck, so please feel free to bring a snack to share if you’re able.
