"Respect ABQ Women" by Young Women United

Mon 4 Nov. 7p: YOUNG WOMEN UNITED leaders, Tannia Esparza and Denicia Cadena will converse with us about the "Respect ABQ Women" campaign. This campaign works through the issues raised by a City of Albuquerque ballot initiative that could abridge reproductive rights and health care for women.

"Every pregnancy is different and making a decision to end a pregnancy is deeply personal and often complex for a woman and her family", our guests said. Learn how this initiative put forward by an interest group wishing to add a City ordinance restricting reproductive rights might impact Latino families in the personal decisions of a woman regarding her pregnancy. The Special Election is scheduled for 19 November with early voting already underway.
