4thU Artivists, a New York City-based benefit performance group, will present their Spring online production, on MARCH 26 & 27 at 8 pm., Choice Words: Voicing Our Truths, Claiming Our Power. This curated reading interwoven with dance, music performance and 3 narrators is a virtual production that aims to take back the cultural conversation on abortion, and uplift the voices of all genders, identities and cultural experiences. The online presentation is inspired by “Choice Words: Writers on Abortion”, the first major anthology of poems, stories, and literary essays about abortion, edited by award-winning poet Annie Finch – who will also read her poetry at this event. Content includes the works of Audre Lorde, and Ntozake Shange, as well as the voices of everyday people from around the world. Event benefits Sakhi for South Asian Women, and Legal Momentum.
