People of Faith Speak Out for Abortion Access:

A Training on Effective Messaging to Protect Access to Care

Wednesday, November 13, 2013
4:00 PM - 5:30 PM
Meadville Lombard Theological School | 610 S Michigan Avenue 6th floor | Chicago, IL 60605

States  have  passed  over  200  restrictions  on  access  to  abortion  in  the  last  five years alone—often under the shameful guise of helping women. People of faith have a critical role to play in this struggle, because the ideas and groups who oppose access to abortion are almost entirely religious.

During  this  presentation,  clergy  and  laypeople  of  faith  will  learn  how  to be effective  spokespersons for  protecting and  expanding affordable  access  to abortion  care,  drawing  from  the  latest  cutting-edge  research.  Participants  will learn both skills and message frames to help to defuse the conflict over issues like parental  involvement  and  abortion  coverage  and  redirect  people's  attention  to respecting and supporting the decisions of others.

This training fits nicely into this year's Study Action Issue from the Unitarian Universalist Association on reproductive justice.

There is no charge for the training; however a RSVP is required and donations will be accepted to defer the costs. To register, visit:
