An ACLU Poetry Reading, Writing, and Discussion Circle
Facilitated by Jessica Helen Lopez, City of ABQ Poet Laureate, Emeritus
This is a workshop and safe space for discussion about our shared reproductive stories, advocacy, activism, and allyship for body autonomy. In the spirit of inclusive gender-fluidity and sex-positivity, and through the lens of poetry and creative writing, this workshop is facilitated by Jessica Helen Lopez, City of ABQ Poet Laureate, Emeritus (2014-2016). Lopez is the author of five poetry collections, an NM Humanities Council Chautauqua Scholar, long-time educator, and an intersectional, Feministizaje activist. Together participants will explore, write, and share their stories of reproductive health, rights and freedoms, body autonomy, power of choice, and respective cultural identities during this hour-long creative writing workshop.
Attendees are encouraged to participate to whatever extent that is most comfortable. We respect all boundaries.
