J'adore Detroit X Roots to Rise Detroit Know Babes Want Rights

We have heard a lot of people saying they are angry and they want to do something, but they don't know what to do. The overturning of Roe v Wade is simply unacceptable. We firmly believe that every person who is able to give birth should have the right to handle their own medical choices with their doctors, PERIOD. We want to make sure that access to abortion stays legal and safe in Michigan and is codified into federal law as soon as possible. J'adore Detroit and Roots to Rise Detroit believe the same thing and have put together an event to help connect like-minded people and to help educate those of us that are feeling angry, lost, and unsure of what we can do to make a difference in our communities, our state, and ultimately on a federal level. 

On July 12th, Babes Want Rights "will focus on providing our community with the information, resources, and support to take action and make informed choices toward protecting our fundamental rights and marginalized groups." The conversation will be led by a panel of professionals who specialize in various topics surrounding access to reproductive healthcare, this includes Dr. Brooke B. Buys, Ph.D., MSW, Bonsitu Kitaba, Deputy Legal Director - ACLU, and Dr. Audrey Lance, MD. They will discuss "information and actions surrounding the amendment and ballot and resources and information surrounding the current and the possible future of women's reproductive rights in Michigan". They also hope to "provide support, and coping tools, and create alliances through the community." 

Doors open at 2:00 p.m. for mingling, cocktails, and snacks, and the panel discussion will run from 3:00 p.m. - 5:00 p.m. J'adore Detroit is located at 2501 Russell St. KGsweets will be providing some cookies and Social Hour Cocktails will be providing some sips at the event. It is 100% free to attend, but you have to RSVP here so they can get an idea of how many seats to get out and how many snacks they need to have. This is a great place for people who are angry and want to take action to find a pathway and some people who also want to do the same thing.
