Medical Freedom

by

Carrie Bigford

Outreach Director with Texans for Vaccine Choice

Texans for Vaccine Choice formed in February 2015 in response to HB 2006, a bill filed during the 84th Texas legislature which aimed to remove religious exemptions from vaccinations for students. A band of parents and legislators worked together diligently to fight off this and 16 other bills that were proposed that session that attempted to mandate vaccines, limit liberties due to personal medical choices, override parental/guardian consent, and increase tracking.

 

Carrie has been a fierce and vocal advocate for medical freedom since 2003 when she was made aware of the issues surrounding our current vaccine program at a work conference.  Since that time, Carrie has had the opportunity to work with multiple medical liberty organizations in three different states as a volunteer and currently serves Texans for Vaccine Choice as their Outreach Director.  Carrie is very passionate about helping others know and assert their medical liberty rights effectively.

Denim Day is April 24th. Please wear your jeans to our meeting.  

April is Sexual Assault Awareness Month

Since 1999, Peace Over Violence has run an inspiring and powerful opportunity to practice solidarity and support survivors by renewing our commitment to exposing harmful behaviors and attitudes surrounding sexual violence. Denim Day is a campaign on a Wednesday in April in honor of Sexual Assault Awareness Month. The campaign began after a ruling by the Italian Supreme Court where a rape conviction was overturned because the justices felt that since the victim was wearing tight jeans she must have helped the person who raped her remove her jeans, thereby implying consent. The following day, the women in the Italian Parliament came to work wearing jeans in solidarity with the victim. Peace Over Violence developed the Denim Day campaign in response to this case and the activism surrounding it. Since then, what started as a local campaign to bring awareness to victim blaming and destructive myths that surround sexual violence has grown into a movement. As the longest running sexual violence prevention and education campaign in history, Denim Day asks community members, elected officials, businesses and students to make a social statement with their fashion statement by wearing jeans on this day as a visible means of protest against the misconceptions that surround sexual violence.


Denim Day 2024 is April 24th!
