The Reproductive Rights Network is concerned that across the US abortion services and reproductive rights’ services are not always easy to access.  Our speakers this year are Yamani Hernandez, Executive Director of the National Network of Abortion Funds, will inform us of the actions their organization takes to help women across the nation access services they are legally entitled to receive and Samar Azam-Yu, Executive Director of ACCESS Women’s Health Justice which operates in Oakland but whose services reach women all over California, will speak on the kinds of difficulties women in California experience accessing reproductive rights services.

Our Connection to the Sea

Saturday, May 21, 2016
SCPD Community Room, 155 Center St, Santa Cruz
10 am Social  – 10:30 Program
Free Admission

Every two years, voters in the City of Santa Cruz, Live Oak, Soquel, the north coast and surrounding areas elect members of the Santa Cruz Port Commission who govern a harbor that was built with local tax dollars, along with state and federal funds, over 50 years ago. The local tax money is gone but the harbor continues to play a central role in our community’s economy and its identity, not to mention the fact that it’s home to many environmental non-profits, is a flash point for some controversies and is base camp for lots of ocean recreation.

O’Neill Sea Odyssey Executive Director, Dan Haifley will discuss the harbor, its history and its role in our politics at our May 21st meeting at 10 am in the SCPD Community Room.
