Clinic Escorts Training

An important message from Shannon Welch ’14:


Clinic Escorts will be holding two training and information sessions, Thursday Jan 30th at 7 and Friday Feb 7th at noon, both in 41 Wyllys Room 110.

Clinic escorts is a low commitment way to support women’s right to choose. We go three times a week in groups of four to a clinic in Bridgeport. Our job is to escort the women from their cars to the clinic door as they are berated by antis. We do not engage with the antis. YOU ONLY NEED TO VOLUNTEER ONCE A SEMESTER :) Bring your friends! Check us out here.

Date and Time: Thursday, January 30 @ 7 PM or Friday, February 7 @ 12 PM
Place: 41 Wyllys Room 110
