Wesleyan Clinic Escorts is a group that trains and organizes Wesleyan students to escort patients into a heavily-protested women’s clinic in Bridgeport, CT. Clinic Escorts seeks to provide a respectful and supportive space for women making reproductive health decisions. Clinic Escorting is less a political statement than a functional means of supporting a woman’s right to self-determination and autonomy.
We are excited to start escorting at the Summit Women’s Center again this semester. Please come to a mandatory info session/training if you want to participate in clinic escorts this semester or you want to learn more. Anyone can participate! Whether or not you have been an escort before, you must attend one meeting to sign up to participate. There are three trainings that should only take about a half hour each.

Interested in being a captain? You can sign up to be a captain at the meeting if you have escorted for at least one semester (and preferably have access to a car). We need at least one captain to go to Bridgeport each time we escort.
Questions? E-mail Darien Combs ’11 at dcombs@wes, Sophie Sadinsky ’11 at ssadinsky@wes or Hillary Biggs ’12 at hbiggs@wes.
We’re looking forward to a great semester!
