Annual Study Issue
Study Issue for 2023-24: Reproductive Justice
Reproductive Justice is “the human right to maintain personal bodily autonomy, have children, not have children, and parent the children we have in safe and sustainable communities.” This definition is from SisterSong, a national Reproductive Justice organization.
Join Accotink this year as we explore and take action on all of these aspects of reproductive justice through sermons, after-church discussions, state and federal advocacy, the Our Whole Lives sexuality education curriculum, and through the activities of our committees, including Social Justice, True Accotink Colors, Racial Justice, Green Sanctuary, and others.

A recent article highlights the importance of this issue (and the issue of racial justice). See the recent Washington Post article: “For some Black women, the fear of death shadows the joy of birth”
