Blog: News Update – July, 2019
Dear Friend of CoRCRC,
We are experiencing a period of unprecedented attacks on and oppression of women, immigrants, people of color, LGBTQ persons and more… all in the name of religion.
Every day, more people are being turned away from religiously-owned hospitals and clinics as they seek to receive reproductive health care services, even in life-threatening situations. Every day, more legislation is passed intruding in very private matters of people’s reproductive lives. This growing trend hits hardest those who are poor or living in rural areas. There is nothing caring about any of these actions.
What difference can you make? How can you bring more care and compassion to individual clients and to our society? What guidance about compassion might we use from our faith traditions?
“Compassionate Care for Reproductive Decision and Loss” workshop answers these questions. Compassionate Care is a free day-and-a-half training specifically geared for religious leaders, medical services providers, social workers, and other helping professionals who provide different forms of care to persons and their families as they deal with reproductive challenges and decisions – in some cases, crises.
This important non-partisan, interfaith workshop is being co-sponsored with Iliff School of Theology and the National Religious Coalition for Reproductive Choice on Wednesday-Thursday, September 18-19, 2019. To register by July 30, email email@example.com.
We know that you care. Help us make a difference in people’s lives.
