Staying engaged in current events can be challenging. Endlessly scrolling through headlines, bookmarking articles, and watching videos of what’s happening in the world can feel overwhelming and frustrating especially when you don’t have a space to share your thoughts or a community to lean on.
NAPAWF*NYC introduces The Study Group: an article club that meets regularly in order to further educate ourselves and each other on current issues that impact our communities. This is a dedicated space for civic-minded Asian women and femmes to thoughtfully unpack issues, learn, and unlearn.
For our upcoming January 29th Study Group, our topic of focus will be on reproductive justice, specifically learning about and fighting racist and sexist bans on abortion access like PRENDA (Prenatal Nondiscrimination Act). Based on inaccurate and harmful stereotypes that Asian women prefer sons over daughters, PRENDA is a bill that would obstruct Asian American women's access to reproductive care & expose them to criminalization.

Prior to each session, we'll provide relevant articles and multimedia content for you to look through before the discussion. Going over the materials is recommended, but not required to join the session.
We hope you'll join us— Please RSVP to attend and receive materials before the meeting!
