Wanderlust Bike Tour for Reproductive Justice

Wanderlust Bike Tour

This summer, a group of sixteen women are traveling from New Orleans to New York City on a reproductive justice bike tour. In solidarity with local activists and rooted in the belief that sharing stories is a powerful way to elevate awareness and create social change, we'll be pedaling from town to town to listen to your stories and document how you and others are working to expand access to reproductive health care, defend reproductive rights, and promote reproductive justice.

It's a story collective - it's a bicycle caravan - it's building the movement for reproductive justice!

The goals of the trip are to document the inspirational, groundbreaking work happening across the country and build horizontal networks to strengthen our collective movement for reproductive health, rights, and justice.

THE INVITATION: Do you or does someone you know live along the route? We're looking for health care providers, sex educators, supportive clergy, reproductive justice advocates, policy changers, radical activists, doulas, midwives, culture jammers, and anyone who is working to empower women to control their bodies and their lives.
Join us to share your story at a Wanderlust discussion gathering. We're interested in knowing what you do and why you do it, what the important issues in your community are, and how we can work together to build a strong and vibrant movement for social change.

Forum on Reproductive Choice in New York

Cooper Union, one of the best fine arts colleges in the country, is bringing a pro-choice talk into the school auditorium.

NARAL Pro-Choice New York is holding a forum next week on the history of reproductive choice in New York, the present threat to Roe v. Wade, and why we need to pass the Reproductive Health Act. We want to show Cooper Union students why they should care just as much about choice as they are passionate about their work at this prestigious school.

And they’re not the only ones invited. Join us as we talk to Cooper Union about choice in New York.
