The Circle is probably the oldest known dance formation on earth. In traditional societies, people used music and dance to experience the sacred.
They brought the rhythms of the natural world into their bodies, hearts and minds
and brought them to life in dance.
Sacred Circle Dance rediscovers these ancient dance traditions, bringing us together to share life and encounter the sacred through movement

Tarleton is known across the country as a sacred circle dance leader. We are bringing her from North Carolina for this special event.

 

We will gather at 4:00 and dance from 4:30 to 6:30, ending in a candlelight dance.

 

Come join us ~ Beginners are welcome

 not only will we defeat this ballot measure, but we will also tell all of the out-of-state groups who are behind this ballot measure that New Mexico refuses to have the government interfere in a woman’s deeply personal decisions. We respect women to make the right decision for themselves and their families.

~ Jennifer Ford, Campaign Director Respect ABQ Women

WATCH Christie’s Story

“We were ready to give our two year old a brother or sister. And everything with the pregnancy went pretty well until we went for our 20 week ultrasound. One of the doctors said “your baby is very sick.” I could carry the baby to term and watch her suffocate or I could end the pregnancy early and let her go peacefully.”

Voice over: Doctors and Nurses ask you to vote no on the ordinance that puts government in a family’s private decisions.

“I never thought I would ever need an abortion. I think politicians need to leave these decisions to the family and to the doctors.”

If you have any questions, feel free to let me know, or visit our website at www.respectabqwomen.org, and remember to like us on Facebook.  We are so proud of what you’ve done so far, and look forward to working hard with each and every one of you…!

 

We have been privileged to have so many strong community leaders and organizations stand with Respect ABQ Women and we couldn’t be more proud. Last week, as you may have already heard, American Hero Dolores Huerta endorsed the Respect ABQ Women campaign. Our local Telemundo station did a great interview with Dolores about our efforts.

You are going to see a lot more out of state groups coming in to our hometown to try to force this ballot measure on us. This is why we need you to join our campaign and help us talk to as many Albuquerque voters as possible. Please forward this email to your friends and ask them to join our campaign.
