“I had such a great time and learned a lot both on the tour and talking with you afterwards.”
“I am really glad that I joined in this great tour to learn more about NYC and American histories on reproductive health and freedom. It is very knowledgeable, memorable and insightful. I am inspired by those brave women who fight for women’s rights. No matter how hard it is, we should not give up.”
“Thank you very much for the wonderful tour.”
“Thank you so much for the thoughtfulness and knowledge that you shared, and your race conscious, intersectional approach. It feels so crucial to be in community to reflect upon this crucial movement history, and to chart a path forward, using lessons from the past and innovative approaches.”
“Thank you so much! The tour was amazing, informative and empowering. I haven’t stopped talking to my friends and family about it.”
“What a great tour!! Thank you for this informative tour of Reproductive Freedom in Lower Manhattan. While this will always be an important tour, the timing of it is perfect … [Our tour guide] was lovely and so knowledgeable about the fight for reproductive health and justice. She does an awesome job in connecting the past and the present. Also, 10% of the payment for the tour goes to the New York Abortion Access Fund. This is a highly recommended tour!”
“Thank you for the powerful tour! Great meeting and learning, and inspiring the impressive group of people who assembled yesterday.”
“The Repro Freedom Walking Tour was an incredible way to spend an afternoon. The leader was organized, intelligent, informed and kept us moving. I learned new and useful information and had a great time on an unexpectedly hot Sunday! The guest artist, who read and enacted historical texts throughout the tour, added depth and entertainment, and sometimes much-needed levity. The tour brought together an intelligent and insightful group of people, who I thoroughly enjoyed meeting and learning from, as we walked down the streets of NYC discussing and normalizing the conversation of reproductive rights and justice. This act was validating and felt like the action I am so desperate to take these days. Thank you!
“If you want to see buildings that were the sites of significant moments in the fight for birth control, the reproductive justice movement (and the movements to suppress them), you will see that on this tour. You will also be educated on the issues in the past, the issues in the present and the issues of the future (and how they all intersect and controversies that exist to this day) … in an interactive but succinct way. I highly recommend it.”
“It was such a joy to participate in the walking tour. The deep research and the actor’s interpretations made history come to life! I could not have imagined a more wonderful capstone experience for my students. Thank you for doing the essential work that you do.”
“This walk was historic, empowering and so interesting! I have recommended it to everyone I know. GO ON THIS WALKING TOUR!!”

HISTORY OF OUR WALKING TOUR
Now part of Social Justice Tours, we began our Repro Walking Tours eight years ago with a single day of multiple groups joining us on an interactive walk, festival, video and follow-up toolkit, all designed to put reproductive justice on the map, in our lives, our history and our communities!
