On June 24th the U.S. Supreme Court held that the Constitution of the United States does not confer any right to abortion, and overruled both Roe v. Wade and Planned Parenthood v. Casey. 

Surge Reproductive Justice is holding this space centering QTBIPOC and for the BIPOC community to connect with one another, share culture, and build a collective strategy in response to the ongoing attacks on bodily autonomy tat we see from legislation.

If you are looking to into a strategy that: 

  • Centers and follows the lead of Queer and Trans BIPOC communities
  • Organizes for self determination and bodily autonomy
  • Acknowledges that in order for us to achieve bodily autonomy we need to address the intersection of racism, sexism, and classism

Then please register for the Post-Roe Community Discussion on Tuesday, July 12th at 6 PM PDT to be a part of this community process. (QTBIPOC centered BIPOC ONLY)
