In the struggle for reproductive rights, health, and justice, we have been making our way through the desert. We have united, divided, converged. And now we emerge with the wisdom of 41 years since Roe v. Wade. What are our real, full, and true stories in our struggles for justice? What are the ways forward?
From the work of the abortion provider to the child-care worker, from reproductive rights lawyers to reproductive justice activists, we will celebrate our hope, our creativity, and our passion for making justice, compassion, and dignity a fully-lived experience for all.
Molded from the clay of progressive and justice-seeking faith traditions, particularly Unitarian-Universalism, this service is a space for those who
identify as spiritual and progressive-religious, as well as folks who identify as agnostic, atheist, and non-religious.
