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!

abortions.

So, my main homie Avery Truf-wuf-wuf-elman ’13 just hit me up to get the word out on this thing that’s going down this Thursday and Friday:
