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

This session is intended for Brown, Indigenous, Black, Asian, Pacific Islander, and other people of color. Memories are carried between generations in many different ways. Many of us, cultural workers, full spectrum birth workers and reproductive justice organizers of color understand the importance 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 around menstruation. In this gathering we will talk about the importance of cultural preservation and menstrual education in reproductive justice, and sharing knowledge and experiences around holistic menstrual care.
