    c3:initiative is pleased to host Forward Together, Momentum Alliance, and the Western States Center for a discussion about reproductive justice in Oregon and an artist workshop with exhibiting artist nicole gugliotti as a part of the exhibition, Social Objects.

    nicole gugliotti's project, "10,690 Wild Flowers" explores and honors how each person's story of accessing abortion in the U.S. is unique and important. The ceramic flowers in the piece are handmade by viewers in collaboration with local reproductive justice organizations and are currently displayed and for sale at four locations in Portland, including c3, Planned Parenthood Columbia, and the Downtown Womwn's Center. Proceeds benefit the Network for Reproductive Options, Oregon's independent abortion fund.

    Join us to learn more on Saturday, April 8th, 1–3pm at c3:initiative (7326 N. Chicago Ave, Portland OR, 97203)
