The global pandemic did not create disparities in access to health care or barriers to abortion, but it certainly has made it much, much worse.
The fact is the people who have the least tend to hurt the most in challenging times. We need to step up and be there for our communities!
We continue to see a disproportionate burden of job loss, economic struggles and health disparities on people of color.
All Rhode Islanders deserve to be able to get by and thrive. That includes closing gaps to effective health care, including abortion care!
It’s time to tackle the inequities that put care and support out of reach for people of color in Rhode Island. The Womxn Project just launched a public education campaign to help people understand that when it comes to barriers to abortion it is not just an issue of healthcare (though yes, it most certainly is). Affordable abortion care is also part of advancing and ensuring racial and economic justice. It is about making sure we can all manage our bodies, plan our families and control our futures even and ESPECIALLY during a global health crisis!
Have you seen our newspaper ads? They ran in the Warwick Beacon, Cranston Herald and North Providence Valley Breeze this week and will continue to be out there in print and digital to help raise awareness and get people engaged. Learn more about this campaign and what’s next.
Together, we can speak out and show up to build a better future in Rhode Island – one where we all get to make our own decisions and thrive!
