FAQ's

Q: What does Reproductive Justice mean?
A: The standard definition we use for Reproductive Justice is "The right to HAVE children, the right to NOT HAVE children and the right to PARENT the children we have in SAFE and HEALTHY ENVIRONMENTS." We iinvite you to Google the history of the Reproductive Justice framework and specifically look for materials from Sister Song and Trust Black Women.

Q: Where does the march begin?
A: This is a RALLY not a MARCH. Just show up at the Capitol steps and listen to our great speakers. You can also check out information from our wonderful sponsors at informational tables.

Q: What color scheme should I wear?
A: We aren't encouraging attendees to wear any particular color. The most important thing is just to be there - come as you are!

Q: Where shall I park?
A: There is typically plenty of parking along Woodlane Ave. and at the lot on Capitol and Woodlane. Plan to arrive by 12:45 to ensure you get a good spot.

Q: Is there an after party?
A: Yes, please join us for the After Party at a location TBD immediately following the rally. We'll have live music and a silent auction that will benefit ACRJ.

Q: Am I welcome if I am Pro-Life?
A: The Reproductive Justice movement has a history of including people that consider themselves Pro-Life. The beauty of the Reproductive Justice framework is that it recognizes that everyone is an expert in their own life story and experiences. We all come to the movement as whole people with many different perspectives.

One thing that we maintain in the movement is that abortion must remain a safe and legal medical procedure for an individual to decide if and when they need it with the counsel of their health care provider, their loved ones and their faith.

The concept of when life begins is deeply personal. For some it is based on faith, for others it is based on science or medicine. One thing we should all be able to agree on is that politicians aren't the experts.

Q: I cannot attend. Will this be live-streamed or filmed?
A: We will release video footage of the speakers several weeks after the rally on our YouTube channel. Check us out on YouTube here: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCFTEugZ5iHozHSabfyw9eYg.

Q: Is this a family friendly event?
A: Yes, with one caveat. We will be speaking frankly about abortion remaining safe and legal, Trans rights, Black Lives Matter and sexual assault. We have many children attend with their parents each year but just know that our speakers will address some weighty topics.

Q: Will you have security on site?
A: The Capitol police will be on site and the Little Rock Police Department will be monitoring our rally.
