Anti-Abortion Center (AAC) Teach-In
Join GRR! (Grandmothers for Reproductive Rights) to learn how to stop AACs (aka CPCs) misinformation and biased healthcare in its tracks to ensure the safety of all.
Time & Location

About the Event
Join activist leaders from Grandmothers for Reproductive Rights (GRR!) to learn about how to take action against the rampant misinformation distributed in our community through anti-abortion centers (AACs), also sometimes referred to as crisis pregnancy centers (CPCs).
Anti-Abortion Centers operate in every state across the country, united in an agenda to stop abortions through misinforming, coercing, shaming + outright lying to pregnant people seeking support. AACs receive public funding in some states and are a key prong of the anti-abortion movement’s strategy post-Roe, which makes exposing & confronting them more critical than ever. This interactive training session prepares participants to lead teach- ins, plan demonstrations, lead public awareness efforts and direct young + vulnerable pregnant people toward non-judgmental, evidence-based providers in their local communities.
Participants will be encouraged to bring what they learn from this event to engage in the Debunking AACs: Reproductive Options Exist event on Tuesday, April 25, 2023 @ noon at Channing-Murray as part of the 2023 U-C Repro Justice Week.
