Join VOX: Voices for Planned Parenthood, Planned Parenthood Federation of America, Feminist Students United, the LGBTQ Center, and Interactive Theatre Carolina for a day long workshop on reproductive justice!

The goal of this training is to allow participants to gain an understanding of what reproductive justice in the US means, the roles and services of Planned Parenthood, the conflicting messages that pregnant people face when confronted with the possibility of abortion, and the specific challenges that LGBTIQ individuals in the US face in the arena of reproductive justice.

Free lunch will be provided!

We would greatly prefer if you would register for this event so that we can know how much food to order, but if you show up without registering, we won’t turn you away!

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
  • Poetry
  • Stories
  • Information
  • Anything your heart desires!

About:

  • Contraception
  • Education
  • Periods
  • Sexualities
  • Stigma
  • 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!!

The deadline has yet to be set, but we welcome submissions immediately and will keep everyone updated.

Email your submission as an attachment to: uncfsu@gmail.com and be sure to include your name and any other relevant personal information so that we can give proper credit.

Feminist Students United (FSU) is a progressive feminist organization which affirms that no form of oppression can be overcome until all aspects of racism, classism, sexism, and heterosexism are dismantled. We acknowledge intersecting identities and strive to be mindful of these intersections in all our work. We endeavor to create an environment which is non-hierarchical and supportive in nature, and we work to bring about change in our community through education, outreach, direct action and community organizing.
