I can’t find a transcription of this speech that is correct.  All of the versions available leave out critical bits of this speech.  They leave out the mention of spending too much on military bases instead of bases of genuine concern, etc.  A typical example of the attempt to de-radicalize the good Rev. King.   Listen to this in its entirety.

SATURDAY, OCTOBER 27TH from 11AM-5PM
at the UNIVERSITY OF NORTH CAROLINA at CHAPEL HILL
Seating is limited: REGISTER NOW

The goal of the Carolina Reproductive Justice Conference is to expose student activists championing various causes to the Reproductive Justice framework which we hope will provide the foundation to see how our “disparate” causes are in fact intersectional.

We aim to give our community a more inclusive lens through which we can view our own work and the work of others. Through this lens, we can come together to support one another, build strong cross-issue coalitions, and gain power as a collective voice and champion for all social justice issues.

As Students United for Reproductive Justice is invested in the reproductive health, rights and justice of all people, we want our fellow campus organizers and activists to understand how the issues that they champion–racial, economic, environmental, political etc.–also have a strong affect on people’s reproductive health and reproductive freedom.So come, one and all, for a day of workshops, speakers, and solidarity. Space for this conference is limited, so please REGISTER AS SOON AS YOU ARE ABLE

 

Good news, everyone: VOX is making a ZINE! That being said, a ZINE is no simple feat, so we are looking to you, feminists!

The theme of this zine will be, quite generally, Reproductive Justice & Freedom!

This collection of awesome will be a celebration of SEX, Sexualities, Women’s Rights, and anything else you dream up.  Have you been searching for a way to vent your frustrations with recent attacks on said rights? Here’s your chance!! Do you want to express your opinion or share an experience with how our legal and social norms limit these rights? We want YOU!

That means:

  • Art work

  • Education
  • Periods

  • Social Norms and how/why they suck
  • Pregnancy
  • Abortion
  • Exams
  • Health care
  • Sexual Experiences

In addition, we are looking specifically for short anecdotes surrounding sex education, Planned Parenthood, sexual relations and the like.

Tell us: What went wrong? What went right? How did being educated impact this experience – OR – how did this experience demonstrate the importance of sexual education?  Have a notable experience with PP?  We want to hear about it!!
