Storytelling as Activism + Reproductive Justice Week!

November 8 2017 in Wilmington, NC

Discussion Group
November 8 2017, 6pm
Azalea Coast Room, UNCW Fisher University Union
Wilmington, NC

In this 90 minute program, Poppy and Amelia discuss their respective approaches to creative abortion storytelling as activism. Amelia focuses on the emergence and evolution of #ShoutYourAbortion, which begun as a viral hashtag and subsequently evolved into a full-edged movement. Poppy talks about how being a queer woman of color influenced how she documented her abortion story in the short film Names of Women, and why intersectionality is essential in the conversation about reproductive rights. The presenters will then lead students in a talk-back and engage students in a conversation about why changing the way we talk about abortion has the power to change lives and legislation.

This event is part of Reproductive Justice Week in Wilmington NC! Learn more about all the amazing activities happening here.
