Celebrate, honor and resist on the evening of Thursday, January 25 - the 45th anniversary of Roe v. Wade - come find out about the fight in New Hampshire to protect reproductive freedom and women's right to choose. Please RSVP by Friday, January, 19.

Why Roe v Wade still matters?

Since the 2010 Elections, state politicians have passed more than 338 restrictions on abortion, 50 in 2016 alone. There is at least a half dozen bills on the 2018 legislative docket that could restrict women's reproductive rights.

Come join us, and featured speaker NH State Representative Amelia Keane, in honoring two exemplary voices in the fight for women's reproductive health.

 

Dawn D. Zitney
Dawn is a wellness educator/counselor in the Health and Wellness Center at the University of New Hampshire (UNH) in Durham. The Center provides reproductive and transgender health services to UNH students. Dawn organizes UNH's annual Sextober celebration — a month of sexual health programming and education on campus. She also co-founded Being Fierce and Fabulous, a women's empowerment group that's been offered at UNH since 2007.

Lauren Banker
Upon graduation from the University of New Hampshire in 2013, Lauren jumped right into social justice work. She has been devoted to the issue of reproductive justice since her first days at UNH. She finds it rewarding to have a positive impact on the health and well-being of our society. In her recent role as New Hampshire Public Affairs Organizer for Planned Parenthood of Northern New England, Lauren was responsible for cultivating and managing activists and volunteers who are equally dedicated to this mission. In addition, Lauren regularly promoted access to reproductive health services at local public affairs events, legislative engagements and within local health centers. Lauren's work also included advocacy on behalf of Planned Parenthood's Global Health initiatives.
