that the way to make sure everyone—regardless of sex, gender, relationship status, age, ability, race, economic situation, educational background, political beliefs, or religious beliefs—has the comprehensive education & support around sex, sexuality, reproduction, birth control, and fertility they deserve is to center the experiences & needs of those who are most marginalized.
that bodily awareness is inherently a political action & spiritual practice.
that capitalism, white supremacy, & over-policing has fragmented our communities—confusing our innate ability to care for ourselves and others, and stealing the traditions, knowledge, & rituals that keep us grounded & whole.
that there is no one right way to handle family planning, birth control, pregnancy, or birth, but when folks are given comprehensive, non-shame-based education & information, they will make the right decision for their body / family / situation.
