Pieces from Take Root in OKC

“Reproductive health is not reproductive rights. And reproductive rights is not reproductive justice. And that’s okay.” In fact, she [Shark Fu] argued, we need all three, we just need to recognize the difference between them and not conflate them. Planned Parenthood does reproductive health and they have a lobbying arm that does reproductive rights. But PP is not reproductive justice. That’s okay as long as we are all aware of that. As Loretta Ross said, “We didn’t design reproductive justice to replace pro-choice. If you’re doing abortion rights work, pro-choice is a fine frame.” Via SCATX’s collation of last month’s Take Root conference in OKC.

Paar plaatjes van TakeRoot. Stom genoeg de digitale camera op het logeeradres laten liggen., anders waren de foto’s misschien iets beter geweest…

TakeRoot is een erg leuk festival, zeker voor herhaling vatbaar. Mooie dingen gezien met als hoogtepunten The Tallest Man On Earth, Kurt Ville en Matthew and the Atlas.

Minpuntje was de podiumindeling. Het zich verplaatsende publiek in de entreehal en foyer zorgde voor veel rumoer .
