We’re celebrating by sharing more abortion stories, from local people, in their own words. These stories will help speak truth to power and reflect the various reasons people chose to seek an abortion.

A Q&A discussion will follow with local experts in the field of reproductive health care including:Dr. Sofia Jawed-Wessel, an Associate Professor at Health & Kinesiology at the University of Nebraska at Omaha (UNO). Dr. Jawed-Wessel’s teachings utilize a sex-positive and pleasure inclusive approach to providing medically accurate, comprehensive sexuality education to undergraduate students as well as in the local Omaha community.

Scout Richters servers as Legal and Policy Counsel for the ACLU of Nebraska. Her background includes working as a legal intern for the National ACLU’s Women’s Rights Project and acting as a staff attorney at Legal Aid of Nebraska.

LeeAnn Pancharoen is a Health Educator at Planned Parenthood of the Heartland. She frequently provides abortion stigma training to members of the Planned Parenthood staff and the wider community.

Guests will be able to purchase the Shout Your Abortion book, as well as swag from the Abortion Access Fund.Please note: Out of respect for the privacy for our storytellers, no photography or videography will be allowed during the storytelling portion of the event.
