Sisterhood & Sexuality Summit
Sick Chicks hosted our first annual summit on August 4th, 2018 in Orange County, CA. The event featured two educational panels with experts on reproductive care and healthy relationships, with a focus on providing young women with varying illnesses and disabilities the tools they need to advocate for their reproductive rights. Panels included physicians from Cedars-Sinai, Children’s Hospital of Orange County and more along with a representative from Lunette, and Fight2Breathe’s Caleigh Haber, and many more. The summit had over sixty people in attendance and we’re looking forward to expanding in 2019.
“Sexuality is such a taboo subject, especially for people in the disabled community. Thank you so much Sick Chicks for starting this crucial conversation.” // Hannah
“The summit was so informative and interesting. […] I especially loved hearing other peoples’ perspective living with illnesses and how it affects their relationships and outlooks on life because it made me realize I’m not alone. And what the panelists were saying I could relate to. Being a space where people with various illnesses could unite made me feel empowered.” // Cheyenne
“To see women from all walks of life telling their stories and seeing different perspectives was humbling. And it also gave power to my own story.” // Nicole
