In addition to our twice-monthly meetings, we plan events to educate the MIT community about reproductive choice.
We are currently planning a lecture series for the remainder of this semester. If you would like to suggest a speaker or topic, please email us.
21 September 2001 We presented The Cider House Rules at an open event for the entire MIT community. The showing at 7pm was preceded by a meeting at 6.
23 - 27 April 2001 was Pro-Choice Week, an effort to inform the MIT community about reproductive rights and how they are threatened in the current political climate. We had a "Choose Your Own Flower Sale" at a booth in the student center, with $200 raised to benefit Jane Doe, a battered women's advocacy group. We will also be hosting a discussion about NARAL's recent ad campaign on TV, and a celebration for those who helped coordinate the March on Washington to write letters to legislators and corporations.
22 April 2001 Members of MIT Pro-Choice participated in NOW's Emergency March for Women's Lives in Washington D.C. For more information, please contact us.
4 April 2001 Patricia Ireland, president of NOW, spoke to us about maintaining rights during the Bush era. Read more about her visit.
8 & 9 March 2001 Our booth in Lobby 10 distributed pamphlets about contraceptive options, sexually transmitted diseases, abortion, and pregnancy. We also gave out condoms to students, staff, and visitors.
6 March 2001 Guests from MIT Medical led a non-political discussion about safety and usage of contraceptive devices, and also pregnancy and abortion resources available at MIT.
IAP 2001 We watched Dirty Dancing in late January.
In the future, we hope to sponsor a lecture on the power of the Supreme Court.
