Our Truth, Our Lives: Storytelling for Reproductive Freedom

  • Project Reach 39 Eldridge Street New York, NY 10002 (map)

Our stories are too frequently overlooked and missing, especially when it comes to reproductive health, rights, and justice. In lieu of The Study Group this month, join NAPAWF NYC for an evening of storytelling and sharing. We're inspired by the Advocates for Youth 1 in 3 project (nearly 1 in 3 U.S. women will have an abortion in her lifetime), which recently brought 14 brave women to Congress to share their abortion stories.

As AAPI women, we know telling our personal stories can be empowering both for ourselves and for those listening. We deserve to share our truths and frame our own narratives, especially in the face of stereotypes placed on us by politicians aiming to control our bodies and harm our families.

By sharing our stories regarding health, family, and identity as AAPI women, we can only strengthen our understandings of each other and our community as a whole. 

At this workshop, we will screen a few stories from the 1 in 3 Campaign, and then share our own stories about accessing reproductive health care. From having an abortion to getting birth control to giving birth, everyone has a story.

Join us on Thursday April 25th, to speak your truth and learn how sharing our stories can have an impact. This will be a brave and safer space.

Thursday, April 25th | 6:30 PM
