The Chicago Chapter of the National Organization of Women (CNOW) will be hosting the fourth annual “Give Your Choice a Voice” event on Thursday, April 24th, 2014 at the Heartland Café in Rogers Park. Proceeds will benefit the Chicago Abortion Fund as well as CNOW.
This reproductive justice event is an interactive night of story-telling, music and dialogue about reproductive justice, choice & agency. Activists, representatives from different organizations and audience members will be telling their stories. In between stories, we will hear from some amazing local bands!
It’s been an intense few years for reproductive rights. We’ve seen attacks on Planned Parenthood, states valuing a fetus over a woman and reproductive justice used as a bargaining chip. People are fed up but more than anything people just want a chance to be heard, to tell their stories. This is an opportunity for you to tell your story, and support other members of the community as they tell theirs.
We want to hear your stories, about abortion, contraception and the Pill, but also about fertility, adoption, choices relating to pregnancy and birth, reproductive justice & agency w/r/t gender identity and transitioning——anything relating to choice, however you define it.
If you are interested in performing, sharing a written story or volunteering for this event, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org. Looking forward to a great event this year!
If you can’t make the event, please consider donating to the Chicago Abortion Fund and CNOW.
