To Have Children (Or Not): A Consciousness Raising
Monthly Meeting February 16th 7:30-9:30pm (*note new start time)
In January we celebrated the anniversary of Roe v. Wade by doing a CR on when we have needed birth control and abortion. In February, we will dig deeper and explore whether we want or do not want children, now or in the future, and why.
We'll be answering the following questions:
1. What are our reasons for wanting children, if/when we wanted them. (Whether we had them, didn't, or are still planning to.) Reasons for not wanting them? If we had them, did our thinking about this change after we had them? If we didn't have them, did our thinking change?
2. Additional question for those who have done parenting work: When does this work feel like an individual responsibility? When does it feel like a collective (community, society wide,national) responsibility?
Details: Tuesday 2/16 from 7:30 - 9:30 pm @ The Commons in Brooklyn, 388 Atlantic Avenue between Hoyt and Bond, near the Hoyt-Schermerhorn Street A/C/G. You can also take the 2,3,4,5 to Nevins or the D,N,R to Atlantic-Pacific. Map.
