Sun, Sep 29, 2019 - 3:00pm to 5:00pm

Equal parts discussion and practice session, this workshop will empower adults with the skills they need to discuss race, racism and fairness with the children in their lives. Participants will also receive four follow up emails to check in about their practice and provide ongoing support.

Not Going Back: A Fundraiser For Planned Parenthood and ACLU

Date: 
Sun, Aug 4, 2019 - 3:00pm to Mon, Aug 5, 2019 - 12:00am

City:

Across the country, abortion rights are under attack. Ignited by the belief that a conservative majority on the Supreme Court represents an opportunity to overturn Roe v. Wade, state legislatures are passing unconstitutional laws that restrict access to abortion. In some cases, the laws ban abortion outright in an effort to force the court to revisit Roe v. Wade. In others, they’re meant to make it so hard for someone to access abortion that it won’t matter whether Roe stands or not.
