Join us at the 2110 Centre for Gender Advocacy for an open meeting to
discuss concrete strategies for confronting the limitations of
abortion access across the country and the ongoing attack on reproductive autonomy in Canada.

In the aftermath of proposed Bill C-484 (\”Unborn Victims of Crime Act\”), and the threat it posed to abortion rights in Canada, we will be discussing strategies for moving beyond reactions to government policy and towards a proactive, grassroots movement for reproductive autonomy.

Let\’s make reproductive autonomy a reality!
