MEChA de UCLA Semana De La Mujer: Transnational Storytelling on Body Autonomy and Reproductive Justice: from South America to California
I will be presenting here tomorrow!
“Tuesday: Transnational Storytelling on Body Autonomy and Reproductive Justice: from South America to California
by Ana. Bel 3-5pm @Chicanx Studies Library
This workshop has been created to share stories about the impact of reproductive injustices in peoples` lives, sexualities and body autonomy. We will be looking at two specific instances, forced sterilisation in Peru and illegal abortion in Chile, to better understand how oppressive systems play a role on controlling our bodies and actions. This workshop is intended to be a translational knowledge-share to understand how racial, economic and gender issues are inherently linked to the reproductive lives of people and women of color in South American countries as well as the United States. The goal of this workshop is to share information and unite struggles across borders and also honour the people that have passed away due to systemic and reproductive violence. It is our duty to understand how reproductive injustices can affect our lives and learn how we can re-claim and organize towards creating a future for body autonomy, self determination and Reproductive Justice. Please feel free to come with stories to share and objects to add to the communal altar. We build new worlds together!
Bio: Ana. Bel
Gay Queer Peruvian, D.I.Y. fine artist, chucheria maker, Abortion Support/Doula in training, grassroots community organizer, currently member of the people of color-only collective Autonomous Communities for Reproductive and Abortion Support (ACRAS). I became interested on Reproductive Justice issues when I was about 14 and realized that abortion was illegal in Chile, where i was living at that time. Since then I have been involved in Reproductive Justice and autonomous health in one way or another. I graduated from UC Berkeley and wrote my thesis on forced sterilizations of Quechua Women in Peru. I also love growing plants, gathering seeds, collecting herbs, story-telling, learning how to support my friends and family during all heir reproductive choicesYou can follow me in my blog lalobalocaart.tumblr.com and learn more about ACRAS at facebook.com/acrascollective”

I was one of the founding folx of the Abortion/Full Spectrum Doula/Support collective Autonomous Communities for Reproductive and Abortion Support (ACRAS) base in L.A. I have been involved in Reproductive Justice and Autonomous Health for over ten years.
