Every Thursday, I drive down Valencia Street right where it runs into Mission Street in San Francisco. Planned Parenthood sits right on the corner. And every Thursday, there has been a religious zealot who parks his truck, signs, banners, and posters all over the sidewalk in front of the clinic. I don’t know how he is allowed to do this, but no one stops him. He makes me furious. Here is yet another man trying to tell women what to do with our bodies. That fury seethes in me and jumps out every time I drive by. That fury is part of the genesis of The Credibility Project. That fury is exacerbated by the heartbeat law now pending in Ohio, and the pending law in Texas that asks for the formal burial of fetal remains.
Today we want you to know about the Credibility Project, coming May 2017, with music by MADLINES and XOA; photo journalism by Lynn Johnson, design by Karl Gillick, concept and choreography by Jo Kreiter; brought to Life by Megan Lowe, Bianca Cabrera, MaryStarr Hope, Yayoi Kambara, Sonsherée Giles, and Miche Wong; supported by UC Hastings and the Center for Work Life Law.
