Queering Up Reproductive Spaces
July 18, 2020 | 8am-11am PST/ 11am-2pm EST
July 19, 2020 | 8am-11am PST/ 11am-2pm EST
6 Hour ONLINE WORKSHOP (2 x 3 hr workshops)
This 2-day workshop will be rooted in the values of intersectional feminism with an explicit critique of the mainstream Reproductive Justice movement. We will be focusing on the voices and needs of queer, trans, and gender diverse people- the most neglected and marginalized in reproductive spaces.
This workshop is more than developing inclusive language. We will dive into the exclusion, discrimination & victimization often experienced by queer, trans and gender diverse people and how this prevents access to resources and the ability to live self-determined lives without fear, limitation or recrimination.
