Come out to Busboys and Poets in Shirlington tonight from 7 to 9 PM for an evening of story sharing and solidarity in support of the 1 in 3 Campaign, a project of Advocates for Youth. The American Civil Liberties Union of Virginia, Progress VA, and NARAL Pro-Choice Virginia are partnering with 1 in 3 and Advocates for Youth as well for this event and it is sure to be a wonderful evening.
The 1 in 3 Campaign strives to end the cultural stigma and shame associated with abortion and support women that have made that choice. The event, in addition to connecting women, will feature a performance by Adele Hampton, a storyteller and poet that is also a member of the DC’s Beltway Poetry Slam Team as well as a Capturing Fire Queer Spoken Word Summit and Slam finalist. Adele is also featured in Flicker and Spark: A Contemporary Anthology of Spoken Word and Poetry, Come and help change the conversation about abortion and abortion access in Virginia! Please RSVP here and we look forward to seeing you there!
