She's With Me

A Feminist Survival Guide to Seattle

What are TRAP Laws Really About?

When: Tuesday, March 29, 5:30-7PM
Where: Belltown Community Center, 415 Bell Street
Cost: FREE; please RSVP to Sarah MacDonald at SMacDonald@LegalVoice.org

Are you curious how the outcome of Whole Woman’s Health v. Hellerstedt will affect women’s right to choose and obtain an abortion? Or what that Supreme Court decision might look like? Do you wonder whether targeted regulation of abortion providers (“TRAP laws”) really protect women – as legislators supporting these bills claim – or just limit their rights? Or perhaps you’re worried about the steady closure of abortion clinics nationwide, and how those closures impact women in diverse communities?

Join Legal Voice for a moderated discussion to learn how TRAP laws may obstruct your access to health care, how those laws impact women from all communities, and what advocates can do to ensure access.

Panelists: Faye Ziegeweid of the CAIR Project, Surge Outreach Coordinator Maru Mora-Villalpando, Cedar River Clinics’ Dr. Deborah Oyer, and Janet Chung of Legal Voice.

*Wine and hors d’oeuvres will be provided!

About sheswithmeseattle

She's With Me is the brain child of three feminists who got tired of emailing each other every time they caught wind of a womanist event, so they created a separate space to house their feminist calendar. The benefits would be twofold: fewer emails cluttering up their inboxes, and more people learning about Seattle's growing feminist community. She's With Me aims to be a feminist hub, where all the goings on of different organizations are collected in one place. Our plans for the site include reviews/write-ups of events, interviews with local feminist activists, news updates, and essays, poetry, and art by feminists. The Fourth Wave of Feminism is here, and She's With Me will be the feminist scrap book documenting our herstory as it unfolds.
