The Colorado Reproductive Health Rights and Justice Coalition will be putting on a Reproductive Rights Roadshow at Colorado Mesa University on Friday, October 4 from 12 noon – 1:30 p.m. in Room 221 of the University Center building, on the 2nd floor attached to the parking garage. Appetizers will be served!
The Roadshow is traveling around the state to inform Colorado citizens about what is happening in the legislature and what’s being done in our community to preserve and strengthen reproductive rights and access to abortion care. The Coalition also wants to listen to you and find out what issues are of greatest concern to people here in our community.
The Coalition is an umbrella group comprised of the National Abortion Rights Action League (NARAL), Planned Parenthood of the Rocky Mountains, the Colorado Religious Coalition for Reproductive Choice, the Interfaith Alliance of Colorado, the American Civil Liberties Union of Colorado (ACLU-CO), New Era Colorado, ProgressNow Colorado and Soul2Soul Sisters.
Keep Abortion Safe, a project of ProgressNow Colorado that seeks to reduce shame and stigma around abortion, will lead an exercise at the meeting in which participants will learn about the stigma and lack of information and services that exist when attempting to access abortion care. They will also catch you up on the policy work ACLU of Colorado has been leading and how you can get involved.
The Coalition works to preserve and strengthen reproductive rights here in Colorado. Bring your questions and concerns and help make the state of Colorado a leader in reproductive rights.
A big question we should ask is why abortion care is so lacking here in Grand Junction and what can be done to make it more accessible.
