The Personal Is Political: Storytelling & Reproductive Justice

The Personal is Political: Storytelling & Reproductive Justice will explore the stories we tell ourselves and each other about our reproductive decision-making. Using holistic storytelling practices, this workshop will provide strategies for sharing our stories within our own interpersonal relationships and the power we have when we use them to contextualize what is happening in our current political landscape.

Childcare is available. Refreshments will be provided. Location is wheelchair accessible with gender neutral bathrooms. Please bring writing utensils, a journal, or your computer.
