Media Advisory: Event Aims to Build Solidarity for Abortion Justice - 08/12/22

A family-friendly event Sunday in Eugene will bring together reproductive freedom supporters to take action, listen, learn, heal and build power for abortion justice.

Abortion Justice Field Day will take place from noon-4pm at Skinner Butte Park, 248 Cheshire Ave. Supporting organizations include Planned Parenthood Advocates of Oregon, Pro-Choice Oregon, ACLU of Oregon, Western States Center, Coalition for Communities of Color, Next Up, Northwest Abortion Access Fund and Latino Network.

After a decades-long fight, this summer the U.S. Supreme Court revoked the constitutional right to abortion by overturning Roe v. Wade. While we are outraged, we refuse to be swallowed by despair. It’s time for us to build the future we want — centered on community care, liberation and self-determination. By building power for the multi-generational fight in front of us, another world is possible. 

Our movement is enriched by the efforts of many community organizations and mutual aid groups. Abortion Justice Field Day will be an opportunity for activists to build solidarity and deepen connections with these vital networks, movement organizers, mutual aid networks, care providers and healers. Activities will include food, music, play, body work, games and engaging in initiatives that support the needs of our communities.

Together, we have the power to stand up against abortion bans and reclaim our rights, impact change and build a better, bolder, more inclusive future where all of us can live the life of our choosing in safety and peace.
