Thursday the 23rd our friends of Planned Parenthood Illinois Action are hosting a fantastic virtual panel discussion, "My Disability, My Choice". This is part of a new PPIA Disability Advocacy & Organizing Program. We learned all about it in our discussion with Claire McNorton!🎖
This discussion will be on disability and reproductive health care and will include Senator Tammy Duckworth; Amber Schmok, Director of Advocacy with Access Living; Keidra Chaney, Digital Engagement and Accessibility Manager with National Network of Abortion Funds; and Michelle N. Johnson, author of “Fighting Fiercely: Unveiling the Unknown about Endometriosis”. They will discuss a variety of topics at the intersection of disability and access to sexual and reproductive health care. The virtual event is free and open to the public. It will include live closed captioning as well as an ASL interpreter.
Registration is required for this event. To do so click this link: https://ppaf.zoom.us/meeting/register/tJcocOiqpj4vGNFZwymUK4B_7gYlLiUemd-L
“All Americans deserve access to essential sexual and reproductive health care, and this includes those living with disabilities,” Duckworth said. “While we’ve come a long way since the ink dried on the ADA more than 30 years ago, we still have a long way to go to make our country—and our health care system —truly accessible.” 🎙🇺🇸
