BENEFITING: SQUAT MEDIA

EVENT DATE: May 22, 2015

THE STORY:

SQUATFest is a conference for birth workers, students, parents, and advocates, organized by the folks that bring you SQUAT Birth Journal. 

What will people experience at SQUATfest? We have an incredible line up of some of the most respected voices in midwifery along with the next generation of leaders working at the forefront of birth work and reproductive justice.

"SQUATFest is all things marginalized in birth.” - SQUATfest 2013 attendee

You'll find our workshops at SQUAtfest cover a range of issues, including practical midwifery skills, natural health and parenting, how to provide culturally competent care to families of all varieties, and other conversations essential to the growth of a just birth movement.  It’s a place to find workshops you will not see elsewhere, such as The Midwife as Abortion Provider, Addressing White Privilege Among Birth Workers, and many others. Throughout the weekend, we will shine a special spotlight on work happening in New Orleans and throughout the South, bringing focus and attention to people working on the ground to improve health outcomes and ensure reproductive justice for all families and children. 

SQUATFest aims to be accessible and relevant to those seeking safe space, information, and solidarity in the complex fields of reproductive health, and to create space for networks of radical folks to work on collective issues both locally, nationally, and globally.

"More liberating than other conferences I've attended." -SQUATfest 2013 attendee

Why donate to SQUATfest? Your contribution is essential to help us keep registrations costs as low as possible to ensure the event is accessible to folks of all incomes, as well as providing essential funds for scholarships and to support our speakers and teachers who will be travelling the New Orleans from around the country. SQUAT is a 501(c)3 nonprofit run entirely on volunteer power, and all the money we raise will go towards making SQUATfest a vibrant, accessible, and life-changing event for those who attend.

Those attending SQUATfest are truly the next generation of birth workers, educators, and activists. Supporting this event will help grow the movement working towards birthing rights, culturally competent care, reproductive justice and much more.
