Ohio RCRC provides opportunities for groups and individuals to learn, discuss, and advocate for reproductive health, rights, and justice. In keeping with our values, we teach compassion and honor women as moral agents. We are also committed to helping people of faith, conscience, and goodwill connect their pro-choice values with activism.
Without education, we know our action will lack impact. And without action, education will fall short of its promise. As such, we are proud to offer our Faith in Action Trainings for Reproductive Freedom to foster the moral power of congregations and communities. Each training below can be tailored to meet the scheduling needs, goals, and budget of your group. For more information, contact us today at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Brave Space Training on Abortion & Spirituality
For too long, the debate surrounding abortion has been polarized and politicized. This interactive training seeks to cut through the noise to help participants assess their values and listen to one another with dignity and respect. Through facilitated discussion and activities that foster deeper empathy and understanding, a brave space will be created where diverse views are honored and explored.
**Ideal for congregations, youth groups, social justice committees, and community conversations.**
Compassionate Care for Reproductive Decision-Making & Loss
Long before the abortion culture wars, clergy and lay leaders of various faith traditions provided non-judgmental pastoral care for women and couples facing an unintended pregnancy. It’s time to reclaim this sacred tradition and practice compassionate care once more. Learn how to better accompany people through reproductive challenges and loss (miscarriage, infertility, abortion, stillbirth, adoption, etc.) and to provide judgment-free emotional and spiritual care.
**Ideal for clergy, seminarians, institutional and denominational groups, and grief support groups.**
Moral Messaging for Reproductive Freedom
This interactive training helps participants assess their values and communicate more effectively with those of differing beliefs. Based on the latest research in moral foundations theory, participants will engage in a variety of exercises to challenge conventional thinking about morality, politics, and religion in a way that speaks to conservatives and liberals alike.
**Ideal for social justice groups, clergy, seminarians, and institutional and denominational groups**
