From Shannon Welch ’14 and Nike Frangules ’14:
In groups of four we go to a women’s health clinic in Bridgeport where they perform abortions every Wednesday, Friday, and Saturday morning. Our job is to escort women from their car to the clinic door, as antis berate them verbally. We act as a barrier between their verbal harassment and the women who wish to enter the clinic. We are not there to engage with the protesters. We are a positive, supportive presence. Volunteers only need to go once or twice a semester!
Come to a mandatory training session to learn more! Tuesday the 17th at 7pm in 41 Wyllys (CRC) Room 115, Friday the 20th 1pm 41 Wyllys (CRC) Room 113, Wednesday the 25th 7 pm Wyllys (CRC) Room 115.
