Safety & Security at LTAS

What will the security protocols be for LTAS 2024? 

As we continue organizing in a post-Roe world, Reproductive Justice leaders, organizers, and organizations from across the country will come together at SisterSong’s national Let’s Talk About Sex! conference in Washington, D.C. We are in a critical and pivotal moment as a country and as a movement. This gathering has never been more critical. 

Our conference will be a space for community to gather to organize and strategize, draw strength from one another, and experience healing and joy. To that end, we are investing in security for attendees' safety with a well-vetted security team familiar with the RJ framework. We are also adding metal detectors and wands for additional protection. We are building the security of our movement; details will be shared with attendees as they become available. 

We understand that visible security personnel, metal detectors, and possible armed security may be triggering, uncomfortable, and new to some of us. However, we also know that abortion providers and activists across the country are dealing with consistent violence and threats of violence from white supremacists, misogynists, and anti-abortion groups. We take our role as a convener of BIPOC organizers & leaders, Queer & Trans folks, and communities targeted and violated seriously. SisterSong leadership is committed to balancing the need for autonomy and respect while adding new levels of security in these uncertain times.


 What safety measures are being implemented due to COVID-19?
