Dorothy Height Social Justice Club

Dorothy Height was a leader in addressing the rights of both women and African Americans as the president of the National Council of Negro Women. One of Height's major accomplishments was at the YWCA USA where she directed the integration of all of its centers in 1946 and established its Center for Racial Justice in 1965. Join our interactive, insightful social justice club with a focus on diverse, thought-provoking writers and subjects.

Join us for our upcoming Dorothy Height Social Justice Club slow read in partnership with Planned Parenthood Keystone and Millersville University:

In this book, Chief medical officer of Planned Parenthood Hudson Peconic Dr. Meera Shah tells the myriad stories of individuals from a wide range of identities whose abortion experiences bring vital and threatened reproductive rights to life.

We will be doing a slow read of this crucial book. Meaning, each month we will be engaging online with other readers in a handful of discussion questions that can be completed at your own pace. We know how busy folks are, so we want them to be able to engage on their own terms.

We’ll be having a few meet-ups in Lancaster (over food) to build community with each other, and take action to support abortion access, and Dr. Shah will be joining us on September 28th for an exclusive meet and greet with book club participants.

This work is done in partnership with Planned Parenthood Keystone and Millersville University with financial support from the Lancaster Community Foundation’s Bridgebuilder Grant Program.
