Staying Connected to the Movement while Parenting

As parents, people planning to parent, and people deciding whether to parent, we will name and address our collective needs. Facilitators and participants, experts of their own lives, will share ideas and resources that uplift parenting and support people in both naming our parenting needs in movement spaces and centering justice within our ideas of family. Bring your questions and needs around conception and birth (sperm donation, fertility, birth experiences), paths to parenting that include fostering and adoption, building social justice in our families and communities, working outside the home while parenting, bringing activist work into our children's schools and upbringing, and the ongoing struggle for institutional support of parenting (paid sick leave, parental leave, pay equity). Through small group break-outs, group discussion and networking, we will envision movement space that supports families' needs and parents' ability to participate fully.
