Houston Handmaids Stand for Reproductive Justice

All across the nation, cloaked in red robes, Handmaids have been showing up at various events, protests, and in statehouses in order to bear witness to harmful legislation and bring attention to a number of critical issues. Indeed, the first organized Handmaid protest of 2017 occurred here in Texas, at our Capitol Building. Houston Handmaids was created to continue these actions. We will continue standing for the myriad of issues encompassed in reproductive justice. We will stand for the dreamers who worry about deportation. We will stand for mothers who worry about their children encountering officers. We will stand for people who seek access to abortion. We will stand for our trans brothers & sisters when they are under attack. We will stand for people who seek access to healthcare. We will stand with those who are dedicated to complete bodily autonomy. Houston Handmaids is a group created by folks in and around the Houston metro area for use by folks in and around the Houston metro area, and we look forward to allying with groups with the same goals, so we may help by putting a startling visual on the face of the reproductive justice movement.
