"Storytelling as Activism" tour with #ShoutYourAbortion through the Bible Belt

In this 90 minute program, Poppy and Amelia discuss their respective approaches to
creative abortion storytelling as activism. Amelia focuses on the emergence and evolution
of #ShoutYourAbortion, which begun as a viral hashtag and subsequently evolved into a
full- edged movement. Poppy talks about how being a queer woman of color infuenced
how she documented her abortion story in the short film Names of Women, and why
intersectionality is essential in the conversation about reproductive rights. The presenters
will then lead students in a talk-back and engage students in a conversation about why
changing the way we talk about abortion has the power to change lives and legislation.
