SummaryA special open mic looking at the phenomenon of #MeToo and reproductive justice.
DescriptionToday's headlines are filled stories about the need to learn consent. What's your story about reproductive rights, transgender justice, sex worker rights, abortion access, or being a survivor? How can we use open mics to amplify our own stories?

Listening and sharing can be powerful and empowering. #WeToo have stories to tell about feminisms, liberation and social change. Listen to three fierce, featured spoken word poets. Bring a piece that is 2 mins or less to share during the open. Join the conversation by live tweeting. Use the hashtag #WeToo to add your voice to the chorus.
