pro-choice action meeting

This tuesday - the 18th at 7pm at the Back to Back Cafe (616 E. Burnside) the Women's Health Collective and Hysteria present an pro-choice action planning meeting.
Not sure how to fight back against the growing threat on Abortion?

The women's health collective and hysteria will host a meeting presenting ways to plug in with planned parenthood and other pro-choice movements who are fighting day in and day out to keep the right to choose. We will also have time for anyone to share what projects they are working on or want to see happen. We must protect women's reproductive rights.

this meeting is open to all and any questions/comments can be e-mailed to:  womenshealthcollective@yahoo.com
