Susie, You’re Pregnant: A Storytelling Teach-In
In partnership with the Urbana-Champaign Reproductive Justice Week, GRR!’s Storytelling Teach-Ins leverage personal abortion stories as told by elders to explore the history of abortion rights, while catalyzing reflection on current realities and the movement for full abortion justice. These multimedia, engaging curricula are built around videos from our Insight to Incite Elder Abortion Storytelling digital archive.
Grandmothers for Reproductive Rights (GRR!) is home to the only national storytelling program for elders who had abortions during the pre-Roe years and beyond. Amid vicious attacks on abortion rights & access, it is crucial for elders to share insights from our experiences while moving in alignment with current demands for abortion justice. Insight to Incite Storytellers make public what we were told to keep secret. In doing so, we affirm the dignity & autonomy of younger generations, as well as our younger selves.
