Indy Women for Choice was formed immediately after Sandra Day O' Connor's announcement of resignation from the US Supreme Court, in order to spur discussion, disseminate information, open a space for strategizing, and call to action all women who believe in reproductive rights as a basic foundation of our autonomy and well-being as women in a society that has historically done its best to deny even the most basic human rights to women.

We believe that apathy and inaction are anathema to our ability to live full, healthy, free lives, and that in order to define our lives as women, we must stand up and fight those who insist on defining the terms of our lives for us.

Please join us in standing up, strategizing, defining and redefining ourselves using our hearts, minds and voices, and never forget, in the words of Margaret Mead, "Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world; indeed, it's the only thing that ever has."

Membership is not just open for Indianapolis or Indiana residents. Anyone can join, but please be aware as we may have get-togethers and discuss issues within the Indiana State Government in the future. You are encouraged, if you live out of state, to start your own community and become active!

If you or one of your posts have been removed from this community and have a question in regards to your removal, please feel free to contact thaimaishuus at livejournal dot com. If you also feel that you would like to make a post and are not clear about whether the content is suitable for this community, please feel free to contact thaimaishuus or muliebrity.

This is not a debate community. This is a discussion community. If you want to start drama, go elsewhere. It will not be tolerated here. Trolls will be banned, and this community will not tolerate its members trolling, either.

This community is moderated and maintained by thaimaishuus & muliebrity. Questions should be directed to any of us via e-mail. Do not make a post asking questions to the mods within the community, please.

Do not post an entry promoting another community without permission from either the owner or maintainers.

Please do not promote your communities here. Take that to communitypromo. Also, please do not feel that you should create another community inspite of another, because you do not like a moderator, this one isn't "active" enough for you, etc. If lack of activity is bothering you, do some good and make a post relevant to this community. There is already a lack of participants in many of the other Indianapolis/Indiana related communities.
