We focus on both moral and legislative support for women's reproductive rights, and based on the success of our first event, have decided to take our efforts further in both the community and educating ourselves. The group #imwiththem has divided into two subgroups, "#imwiththemlegal" and "#imwiththemmoral". "#imwiththemlegal" deals with the legislative side of ensuring that our reproductive rights are safe; "#imwiththem" shows a moral stand with the care providers as well as the patients through Planned Parenthood, as well as other clinics that offer similar services.
Part of our efforts of wanting to further educate ourselves is to establish a book club that meets once or twice a month with a book that refers to productive feminism and other women empowering books that will help us see this multifaceted problem from all angles, and further equip us going forward with this stand.
