With the relentless attacks on healthcare access in 2011 and 2012, abortion-rights activists are looking to alternative strategies of mobilizing support. How can non-mainstream modes of reproductive justice organizing expand our ideas of art-making, protest, and resistance? Situated within specific historical and political legacies of independent feminist media-making, these activists work with diverse tools, mediums, and technologies to create their art. Alongside their projects, these activists strive to create reproductive justice communities of hope and strength, with a focus on community-oriented, grassroots, and localized protest methods.
