Reproductive Justice (1:30 @ SCPL)

Workshop held by the Faculty Organizing Group at UCSC. Panelists will each discuss an aspect of reproductive justice — an approach to reproductive rights that includes, but expands far beyond, birth control and abortion access — and offer some comments and suggestions on how we can support the ongoing efforts of RJ organizations and causes locally.

Join volunteers at your favorite textile arts collective for a communal protest banner sewing bee. We’ll provide Fábrica materials and work together to sew something that expresses our outrage.

Spiritual Activism (1:30 @ SR)

Inspired by facilitator Ami Chen’s work in communities across the US, as well as by the intuitive, spirit-based nature of the protest at Standing Rock, this will be an interactive teach-in focused on helping all of us feel personally empowered to follow our own wisdom into activism in 2017, and beyond.
