NAPW says Knocked Up, Fight Back!



"Knocked Up, Fight Back!" means working together to ensure that no one is stigmatized, shamed, punished, or denied health care or constitutional and human rights because they have the capacity for pregnancy, are pregnant, or because of the outcome of their pregnancies.

What you can do now that you are back?

NAPW knows that activists and allies live and fight in every part of this country including the so-called red states. Unfortunately, larger, mainstream organizations too often treat people in “red” states as too conservative to bother with – instead of encouraging and supporting activism in these parts of the country.

In addition to supporting NAPW here are three more things you can do:

1) Support the Take Root: Red State Perspectives on Reproductive Justice Conference in Norman, Oklahoma. Last year 600 people from Oklahoma, Texas, Kansas, Tennessee and the region attended. Take Root, sponsored by University of Oklahoma’s Women and Gender Studies Program, is taking place this year on Feb 24-25, 2017. Please join us there and give to Take Root because everyone deserves reproductive justice, no matter where they hang their hat at night. http://take-root.org/
