Reproductive Activism and Abortion Research Network (RAARN) is a resource for scholars, advocates, and activists to share knowledge and strategies, and to connect with others interested in enhancing reproductive justice options. This website was created as a result of the first international conference in Canada on abortion scholarship: Abortion: The Unfinished Revolution; held in Charlottetown, Prince Edward Island in 2014. Our vision was to create a networking space for those dedicated to reproductive activism in general and abortion scholarship and advocacy in particular. On a regular basis we have guest blogs by advocates and scholars on a variety of topics relevant to reproductive justice. You can search past blog posts, seek more information on academic-activists and advocates, and make contact for further collaborations. You can access links to various resources including the programme from the original conference with links to papers, photos, and videos.
Are you interested in being a part of RAARN? Please follow this link for more information. Membership is free. To apply, fill out the application form. Once approved, members can participate in the commenting function of the blogs and share their information, including links to their CV, writings, and calls for action and organizing in their region.
