Clinic Escort Training Sessions

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.

Please come to a mandatory training if you want to participate in clinic escorts this semester! You must attend one meeting to sign up to participate whether or not you have been an escort before.

If you are unable to make one of these meetings or have questions, please e-mail Hillary at hbiggs(at)wesleyan(dot)edu, Chantal at cfergusen(at)wesleyan(dot)edu, or Emily at esteck(at)wesleyan(dot)edu.

Hope to see you all there!

Date:   Sept. 20, 21, 22
Time:   7:00 PM, 8:00 PM, 12:00 PM respectively
