En Route: Real Talk about Abortion
Conversations on the Way to the March
Travel Packet Available at www.abortionconversation.com
In its first offering to the pro choice community, the Abortion Conversation Project is presenting En Route: Real Talk about Abortion to travelers on their way to the March for Women’s Lives on April 25, 2004. The travel packet is in three parts: a conversation guide for Marchers, organizers notes with suggestions for facilitating en route activities, and “adopt-a-bus” suggestions for clinics and other organizations.
It is available immediately from the group’s website, www.abortionconversation.com (click on Activities, then under the March logo) or in print in bulk quantities by emailing or calling Outreach Coordinator Grayson Crosby at (503) 317-6866 or email@example.com
“We believe it’s time to break the silence about abortion,” states Peg
Johnston, the President of the Abortion Conversation Project (ACP), comprised
of abortion providers and allies. “It’s time to take the stigma from an
experience over 1/3 of all women will have.” ACP encourages conversations about
abortion on many levels and offers many suggestions for effective conversations
on its website www.abortionconversation.com.
“The response to the EnRoute travel packet has been phenomenal,”
according to Grayson Crosby, Outreach Coordinator. “We really feel that pro
choice activists are eager to talk about what abortion means in our lives.” So far,
more than 8,000 packets have been reserved. The packets, along with conversation guides, buttons, stickers, and other resources will be sent to local organizers in
time for the March.
Grayson Crosby was named one of the “Top 30 Under 30 Activists for Choice” by Choice USA earlier this year. She has worked in clinics as an abortion counselor as well as an organizer for groups such as the Abortion Access Project and NARAL Pro-Choice Washington. Peg Johnston has been an abortion provider for 23 years in upstate NY, is the creator of several resources for women (www.pregnancyoptions.info), and frequently writes on the topic of abortion.
