SPARK’s 2020 Policy Report is now live!

CLICK HERE TO VIEW THE FULL REPORT

This report aims to highlight and lift up the critical research conducted by Trans and Gender Diverse communities to provide an intersectional analysis of the current state of health care experienced by TGD folx in Georgia. It furthermore seeks to identify the policies in place that both harm and help TGD communities, and how laws and policies play a role in the health and wellbeing of TGD communities by determining the extent to which TGD folx are exposed to social determinants of health such as racism, transmisogyny, and economic inequity. This report provides an overview of helpful language and concepts from the reproductive justice framework that guide SPARK Reproductive Justice NOW!’s advocacy. Finally, this report and its inserts offer an accessible overview of TGD rights and protections under the law in Georgia and the U.S. and what SPARK’s policy recommendations are to improve the health disparities experienced by Trans and Gender-Diverse people.

SPARK has a billboard!!

We have a huge announcement…

At SPARK we believe that Reproductive Justice goes beyond the concept of birth — it means that our communities have access to education, housing, resources, and healthcare, in order to make liberated decisions about their own bodies and chosen families.

SPARK is committed to fighting for reproductive justice for all bodies — this means freedom for Queer, Intersex, Trans and non-binary people, accurate sex education, and access to abortion. We recognize reproductive justice as a social justice movement rooted in the belief that all individuals and communities must have the resources and power to make liberatory decisions about their bodies, genders, sexualities, and lives.

SPARK has decided to elevate this message with six billboards throughout the state of Georgia! Find the beautiful image (above) in Atlanta, Macon and Calhoun! 

If you see these billboards, please take a picture and post it on your social media! Be sure to tag @SPARKRJNOW on your tweets, Instagram posts and Facebook posts!

Special shout out to the amazing artist, organizer, community member and friend of SPARK, Lola (leathal_lolita) for her amazing work on this billboard art! Please show her support!

What does RJ mean to you?

We have plenty to celebrate this year, including Dr. Krystal Redman’s appointment to the Fulton County Schools Health and Physical Education Department’s Health Advisory Committee. The committee is comprised of community stakeholders within our district and will have a hand in crafting sex education material prior to it being implemented in classrooms around metro Atlanta.

SPARK applauds Dr. Redman for being an invaluable asset to the Atlanta community and invites you to let us know how you think we should impact Fulton County’s efforts to improve the education of our future leaders.

Read more about what we have planned for the month, and tell us what #RJmeans to you on Facebook, Twitter or Instagram.
