Indy Feminists, the Party for Socialism and Liberation – Indianapolis, Queering Indy, and Women’s March Youth Empower Indiana are standing up for choice and against anti-abortion stigma and shame!

Abortion and contraceptive access are often central themes when discussing reproductive healthcare. But there is more to the full range of reproductive care to which all people should have the right: Quality and accurate sex education; contraceptives and the morning-after pill; abortion care; elective sterilization; appropriate care during miscarriage and stillbirth; and pre- and post-natal care are all critical to full reproductive justice.

However, as feminists, our struggle isn’t only for a limited set of rights: it is a struggle against patriarchy and oppression of all kinds. When fighting for reproductive healthcare, we also fight for healthcare that benefits all people — including discrimination-free, comprehensive and safe healthcare for LGBTQ people. When talking about misogyny and attacks on women, we proudly, unabashedly, and with the utmost urgency defend our trans sisters and denounce anyone who denies their womanhood. When talking about gender equality, we recognize that gender itself is a broad and brilliant spectrum, not an “either/or” binary. And when fighting for reproductive justice, we understand that is especially a struggle for poor and working-class people and oppressed communities, such as the Black, Indigenous, and Latinx communities who are particularly impacted.

We hope you’ll join us on Monument Circle, January 22nd at 11:30am to lend your voice to the struggle. End the stigma! End the shame! Abortion access is a human right! For a world free of misogyny and patriarchy! WEAR RED! We will bring the signs, music, and pro-choice chants!

SAVE THE DATE!

This year we are scheduling League Day at the Statehouse in conjunction with the Indiana Women’s Suffrage Centennial Celebration.

That changes our usual scheduling a bit so that League members can begin by attending the Celebration events at 9:00 a.m. A joint resolution honoring the League founding will be presented in both the House (10:00 a.m.) and Senate (1:30 p.m.). Our session to prepare you for legislative visits will begin at 10:30 (packets available to registrants by email several days before).

Registration information, the full schedule and more details will be forthcoming right after the first of the year.

In the meantime, you may want to contact your legislators to make appointments.

Hoosier Action is going to the statehouse! Hoosier families deserve to have healthy pregnancies and babies, a place to live free from environmental toxins, and the opportunity to thrive, but our representatives at the statehouse don’t always hear the struggles of everyday Hoosiers.

Join Hoosier Action in Indianapolis for a day of action at our Statehouse! We’ll begin in the morning by sharing our stories at a press conference and spend the afternoon meeting directly with legislators and staff whose job it is to represent us.

We are fighting in 2020 to pass the HOPE Agenda for a Brighter Indiana because we believe that Indiana should:
–Protect pregnant workers and new mothers
–Notify Hoosiers about environmental toxins in their homes
–Stop predatory payday lending
–Respond to the addiction and overdose crisis
–Improve Medicaid

To pass these vital new laws, we have to make sure our voices are heard by the decision-makers! Lunch will be provided, and transportation arranged for everyone who registers by January 13th. We are meeting on the 3rd Floor North Atrium of the Indiana Statehouse at 11 am.

The TCW Annual Holiday Bake Sale and Raffle is coming up fast!!

This bake sale might be a little different than you’re used to. You get a tin for a set donation ($5 – $25) and then fill it to the top with your choices of holiday treats! It’s all the yum!

You can help by donating tins ahead of time (bigger is better, we’ve found). You can also help by baking! We need lots and LOTS of cookies, candies, and other baked goods to sell! Best sellers are fudge, toffee, iced sugar cookies, pumpkin, date, nut or other spiced breads, cupcakes, and all those treats that remind you of Christmas’s long ago. Gluten-free and vegan treats are also big winners!

Those of you who don’t bake can share holidays goodies in your homes and with coworkers and friends. Those who do bake can focus on one or two treats in your own kitchen to donate, and come home with a variety from the sale. Everyone gets some delicious treats!

We will also need Cookie Elves to help with setting up tables that morning, ensuring that the cookie platters are refilled, and collecting money. If you’d like to join our friendly band of elves, please let Donna Jo Monroe know at [email protected]

This annual bake sale is one of our largest fundraisers of the year and every dollar goes directly to the church’s general fund to support the work of The Church Within in our community. It is because of your generosity that we were able to install a new roof last year, paint and upgrade the HVAC this year, and consistently offer space to community partners that is welcoming, warm, and safe. Please do make a point to participate in this event. If you will be unable, you can support TCW with your tax deductible gift at paypal.com/us/fundraiser/charity/1649607

Thu, Dec 12, 2019 5:30 PM - Thu, Dec 12, 2019 8:30 PM @ Central Library

DVN is excited to announce that on December 12th we will be hosting the Indianapolis screening of the documentary film “PUSHOUT: The Criminalization of Black Girls in Schools” at the Clowes Auditorium at the Central Library. The event is free but tickets are limited so reserve yours today!

Pushout: The Criminalization of Black Girls in Schools is a feature length documentary, based on the book by the same name by Monique Morris Ed.D. The film takes a deep dive into the lives of Black girls and the practices, cultural beliefs and policies that disrupts one of the most important factors in girls’ lives – education.

The documentary underscores the challenges Black girls face with insight from experts across the country who have worked extensively in the field of social justice, gender equality and educational equity. These experts give context to the crisis and provide a roadmap for how our educational system and those who interact with Black girls can provide a positive rather than punitive response to behaviors that are often misunderstood or mis-represented.

While the challenges facing Black boys in this country have garnered national attention, absent from that conversation was how girls of color, particularly Black girls, are being impacted. PUSHOUT addresses that crisis.

The documentary focuses on challenges Black girls face, emphasizing first-person narratives from girls. We hear from them as young as the age of seven and as old as 19. They describe navigating a society that often marginalizes and dismisses them.

At the same time the documentary lays out how adults and policy makers can address the needs of these young girls and women with positive responses that can short circuit the pervasive over punishment of Black girls.

***Please arrive at the Central Library between 5:30-6pm as the screening will begin in the Clowes Auditorium promptly at 6pm. Following the screening there will be a panel discussion with Indianapolis area activists, educators, lawmakers and community advocates. For more information or questions about the event please email Youth Program Coordinator Colleen Curtin at [email protected]

Dave Lindquist of the IndyStar said it perfectly:

The 18th edition of Tonic Ball will celebrate the music of Bob Marley, Beastie Boys, Radiohead, Diana Ross and the Ramones.

Tonic Ball, scheduled Nov. 22 at five Fountain Square venues, raises funds for hunger-relief program Second Helpings. The event gathers dozens of Indiana musicians and gives them an assignment: Perform songs made famous by someone else.

Country-rock pioneer Gram Parsons was the first Tonic Ball honoree in 2002. This year’s event spotlights reggae icon Marley, hip-hop’s innovative Beastie Boys, shape-shifting rock band Radiohead, Motown superstar Ross and punk rock’s trailblazing Ramones.
