2016 Elections: A Message from our Executive Director


As a public health professional I never thought that the core of medicine and helping others was centered on politics. Sadly, everything about our health and lives is political. The fact that Black and Hispanic people disproportionately lack access to medical coverage, quality of care, and resources, but also lead our nation in rates of obesity, STD/STIs, HIV, infant and maternal mortality, health disease as well as other epidemics, is wrapped up in our political environment and decisions that are made behind closed doors for US but not BY US.


Join me this Thursday, November 10th from 3:30pm – 4:30pm EST for a post-election analysis as I speak alongside terrific panelists, including:

Monica Simpson of SisterSong,

Jessica Gonzalez-Rojas of the National Latina Institute for Reproductive Health,

Kalpana Krishnamurthy of Forward Together &

Rev. Marti Keller of the Unitarian Universalist Congregation of Atlanta.


There’s power in our voices. We need to begin intentionally talking about the politics around OUR bodies, OUR health, OUR futures, and OUR lives.


In Strength & Solidarity,

Dr. Krystal Redman

Dare to Imagine with SPARK!

Dare to ImagineOn Wednesday, October 14th from 11:00AM to 4:00PM, join SPARK Reproductive Justice NOW, in partnership with the U.S. Department of Arts and Culture, as we host our very own #DareToImagine Imagination Station! We invite you to travel through time and space with us to 2035 and imagine a world where we have full liberation of our bodies, our lives, and our communities. We ask you to envision a future where we no longer live in fear of state violence. A future where there are no restrictive laws and policies controlling our bodies. A future where there are no more borders. A future where liberation is no longer a figment of our imagination.

Join us as we exercise radical social imagination—envisioning the world we wish to inhabit, sharing those visions with the world, and sparking next steps to bring that future into being. At our Imagination Station you can take part in an array of creative activities, make new connections, and make your voice heard.

The activities we have planned won’t require much of your time, but are sure to leave a lasting impression!

Film Synopsis

The Year We Thought About LoveWhat happens when a diverse group of LGBTQ youth dares to be “out” on stage to reveal their lives and their loves? “The Year We Thought About Love” goes behind the scenes ofone of the oldest queer youth theaters in America, with our camera crew slipping into classrooms, kitchens, subways, and rehearsal rooms with this fearless and endearing troupe. Boston-based True Colors OUT Youth Theater transforms daily struggles into performance for social change. With wit, candor, and attitude, our cast of characters captivates audiences surprised to hear such stories in school settings. Our film introduces a transgender teenager kicked out of her house, a devout Christian challenging his church’s homophobia, and a girl who prefers to wear boys’ clothing even as she models dresses on the runway. When bombs explode outside their building, the troupe becomes even more determined to share their stories of love to help heal their city. This year is the first year they dare to talk about love. Brave, inspiring, and funny, these are the inspiring LGBT youth that are leading us into the future.
