We would like to invite you to a book talk and signing in Nashville by Robin Marty, author of "Handbook for a Post-Roe America" (Seven Stories Press, 2019). This event is co-hosted with Women's March Tennessee - Power Together, Tennessee Advocates for Planned Parenthood, Planned Parenthood of Tennessee and Northern Mississippi, Women for Tennessee's Future, Indivisible Tennessee, Nashville and Middle Tennessee Indivisible, and Hey Rooster General Store.
Handbook for a Post-Roe America is a comprehensive and user-friendly manual for understanding and preparing for the looming changes to reproductive rights law, and getting the healthcare you need––by any means necessary. Activist and writer Robin Marty guides readers through various worst-case scenarios of a post-Roe America, and offers ways to fight back, including: how to acquire financial support, how to use existing networks and create new ones, and how to, when required, work outside existing legal systems. She details how to plan for your own emergencies, how to start organizing now, what to know about self-managed abortion care with pills and/or herbs, and how to avoid surveillance. The only guidebook of its kind, Handbook for a Post-Roe America includes an extensive, detailed resource guide for all pregnant people (whether cis, trans, or non-binary) of clinics, action groups, abortion funds, and practical support groups in each state, so wherever you live, you can get involved.
