Voices of Abortion Quilt Call For Submissions

Shortly after the Dobbs v. JWHO ruling by SCOTUS, Barbara Riddle-Dvorak’s anger & concern found an outlet in the idea of creating a mammoth quilt to bring attention to the necessity of safe, legal & accessible abortion for all. Grandmothers for Reproductive Rights (GRR!) is excited to partner in this effort that has the potential to illustrate & explore the meaning of abortion in our lives, engaging a craft & artistic tradition with radical & feminist roots.
