Blood, Memories and other Brujerias: The Role of Cultural Preservation and Menstrual Education in Reproductive Justice

Memories are carried between generations in various ways. Many of us, cultural workers, full spectrum birth workers and Reproductive Justice organizers of color understand the need to (re)learn and (re)member traditional medicine as we work towards body literacy, autonomy and freedom. Menstruation can be a tool to better understand our bodies, track natural cycles, control fertility and also learn about cultural and familial traditions. In this gathering, we will talk about the importance of cultural preservation and menstrual education in reproductive justice, and we will share knowledge and experiences around holistic menstrual care.
