Action Collective: Reproductive Health State of the Union

Feeling overwhelmed by all the anti-choice legislation out there? Having a hard time understanding the politics around women's reproductive rights?

Please join us for a night with Jen Moore Conrow, a founding member of the Abortion Care Network and Director of the Penn Family Planning and Pregnancy Loss Center. Jen will guide us through the complicated laws and limits around abortion rights to help us determine where we should focus our action and know what to look for in the future.

As always - we ask that folks come ready with their burning questions for discussion and prepared donate along a sliding scale (minimum $10)!

A note about donations: For now, this is a grassroots "pass the hat around" donation process. For a more formal processing of your individual gift with an organization, please donate using a personal check.

Location: Fergie's Pub - Upstairs is reserved for us, so just let them know on the way in and head up!

All profits from this evening will support the Abortion Care Network: www.abortioncarenetwork.org

------------------------------------------
Jen Moore Conrow, MFS, began her career in reproductive justice in public policy at NARAL: Pro-Choice America, but quickly found her calling in the world of clinical abortion and pregnancy loss care. For nearly a decade at Cherry Hill Women’s Center, Jen was part of a team that defined quality later abortion care while also working actively in the local and national community to destigmatize abortion and to increase access to care. During this time, Jen was a founding board member of the Abortion Care Network, an organization created to support and empower independent abortion providers and create community with activists, lawyers, allied organizations and researchers committed to reproductive justice.

Currently, Jen is the Director of the Penn Family Planning and Pregnancy Loss Center, where she oversees the Ryan Family Planning Fellowship and residency training program, educating and training the next generation of abortion providers. Jen serves on the Executive Committee of the Abortion Care Network Board of Directors and has completed a Core Align Generative Fellowship.

Montgomery County Healthcare Town Hall

  • Montgomery County Community College (map)
  • Google Calendar ICS

Despite the massive public outcry, right-wing politicians still look determined to repeal the Affordable Care Act and radically cut programs like Medicare and Medicaid. This town hall is our chance to ask questions, educate ourselves, share stories, and strategize for the fight ahead.

We'll have an expert panel available to answer questions and guide the discussion, including elected leaders, healthcare providers, and individuals who have directly benefited from the programs that right-wing politicians now want to cut. Together, we can send a powerful message: Montgomery County won't sit back and allow thousands of our friends and neighbors to lose their healthcare.

The location is the MCCC central campus (340 DeKalb Pike, Blue Bell, PA) in the main auditorium in the Science Building, SC13.

Panelists are being announced in the discussion. Stay tuned for more!
