Clinic Escorts Info Sessions

Straight from Camille Casareno ’15:

Interested in reproductive justice issues? Do you believe bodily
autonomy is a human right? Wesleyan Clinic Escorts is having
info/training sessions for interested folks. We travel regularly to
one of the most protested clinics in Connecticut to provide a
confident and calming presence to the visitors and staff members of
the clinic. Here are the dates and locations of the info sessions:

Feb 9th, Monday, 4.15-5pm in Usdan 108

Feb 12th, Thursday, 12-12.45pm in 41 Wyllys, Room 114

Feb 16th, Sunday, 4-4.45pm in 41 Wyllys, Room 110

Newcomers only need to attend one session. Commitment is small (once
or twice a semester) but we make a big difference to the patients and
staff of a Bridgeport clinic. We welcome everyone!

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
Place:  Fisk 413
