Arts and culture community gatherings to reimagine our sexual and reproductive future!

Reviving Radical

Reproductive oppression has and continues to disproportionately affect women of color, trans and non-binary people, the working class, and poor communities. 
This event series will use the power of arts and culture to spark the dialogue necessary to begin reckoning with Planned Parenthood of Greater New York's history and reimagining our work with community.
