When we share stories, we have the power to dispel myths surrounding abortion, normalize abortion as a common + safe medical procedure, eliminate stigma and shame surrounding abortion, and reclaim the narrative. NOAF will come equipped with some pre-written and pre-recorded stories; guests are invited to share their own if they feel so moved (but that's not a requirement by any means). Space is limited for this free, cozy event so register today! https://glitter-box-n-o.myshopify.com/products/noaf-outloud-x-glitter-box-seat-reservation?fbclid=IwAR2U8fdoXp5AJ4PKmK37457cnfsPFpz8TWbFPeQtm8y9a3cdHbXDajXSjwo

The Zigzag Group Book Discussion
Wednesday, October 23. 7725 Cohn Street. 7PM-10PM. Booking
Description: “Is the thought of Gilles Deleuze secretly linked to Pierre-Joseph Proudhon’s declaration: ‘I am an anarchist’? Has anarchism, for more than a century and a half, been secretly Deleuzian? In the guise of a playfully unorthodox lexicon, sociologist Daniel Colson presents an exploration of hidden affinities between the great philosophical heresies and ‘a thought too scandalous to take its place in the official edifice of philosophy,’ with profound implications for the way we understand social movements.” – from the book Schedule: We will discuss topics of interest, according to the following schedule. Participants are asked to offer responses and questions to the group on some of the topics that interest them. Sept. 11 “Action” to “Eternal Return” (pp. 23-85) Sept. 25 “Ethics” to “Monad” (pp. 85-147) Oct. 9 “Monism” to “Repetition” (pp. 146-206) Oct. 23 “Representation” to “Will” (pp. 207-268) RSVP: To join the group or for further information, please contact surregionalist@bellsouth.net
