Power of Choice: Abortion is Essential

Tuesday, December 1, 2020 @ 6:00 PM

Join us on December 1st for our annual Power of Choice: Abortion is Essential celebration. We’re delighted to have author and cultural critic, Roxane Gay.Her work garners international acclaim for its reflective, no-holds-barred exploration of feminism and social criticism. With a deft eye on modern culture, she brilliantly critiques its ebb and flow with both wit and ferocity. Words like “courage,” “humor,” and “smart” are frequently deployed when describing Roxane. Her collection of essays, Bad Feminist, is universally considered the quintessential exploration of modern feminism. NPR named it one of the best books of the year and Salon declared the book “trailblazing.” Her publications include debut novel An Untamed State, bestselling memoir Hunger: A Memoir of (My) Body, and a collection of short stories Difficult Women. 

Roxane co-hosts Hear to Slay with Tressie McMillan Cottom – a podcast with an intersectional perspective on celebrity, culture, politics, art, life, love, and more. She is also a contributing op-ed writer for The New York Times. Her writing has appeared in McSweeney’sThe Nation and many other publications. She was the first black woman to ever write for Marvel, writing a comic series in the Black Panther universe called World of Wakanda. Roxane fronts a small army of avid fans on social media and when she finds the time, she dominates the occasional Scrabble tournament.

6:00-6:45pm: Exclusive Zoom call with Roxane for specified ticket holders
7:00-7:45pm: Speaker program via streaming platform
Link and details to join virtual events will be provided November 30th.

November Volunteer Clinic Escort Training

Our monthly Volunteer Clinic Escort Trainings are back – with a virtual twist! Fill out our interest survey using the link below and we’ll provide call in information closer to the event.
For more than a decade, NARAL Pro-Choice Minnesota has trained clinic escort volunteers who help women safely into their local abortion provider. Clinic escorts are a friendly face and a safe barrier between patients and the anti-choice protesters who harass women outside of clinics. NARAL has trained hundreds of volunteers for our Minneapolis and Robbinsdale clinics – and we’re inviting you to become one of them.
Join us on November 10,2020 via Zoom for a clinic escort training. Here, you can learn the history of clinic escorting, the logistics of working with Minneapolis providers, and how to handle clinic protesters.
After the training, you’ll have the opportunity to sign up for specific escorting dates

Reproductive Freedom Book Club

Have you been wanting to join a book club, but not known where to start? We’ve got you covered! Join our first ever book club where you’ll be able to engage with fellow reproductive freedom activists, have thoughtful discourse, and learn from each other.

We’ll meet virtually every two weeks on Zoom (for the time being) to discuss a designated section of our chosen book.

Our current selection is Reproductive Justice: An Introduction by Loretta Ross. About the book: “Reproductive Justice introduces an intersectional analysis of race, class, and gender politics. Clearly showing how reproductive justice is a political movement of reproductive rights and social justice, the authors illuminate how, for example, a low-income, physically -disabled woman, living in West Texas with no viable public transportation, no healthcare clinic, and no living-wage employment opportunities, faces a complex web of structural obstacles as she contemplates her sexual and reproductive intentions. Putting the lives and lived experience of women of color at the center of the book, and using a human rights analysis, the authors show how reproductive justice is significantly different from the pro-choice/anti-abortion debates that have long-dominated the headlines and mainstream political conflict.”

When: Every other Tuesday starting July 22nd from 6:00-7:00pm
Where: Zoom online meeting (Info will be provided upon receipt of R.S.V.P.)
