Hey hey, amazing listeners! Welcome to today's episode of the Fuck It All Podcast where we dive deep into stories of empowerment and breaking stigmas. We are BEYOND excited to share this week’s incredible guest with you.
This week on the podcast we have the remarkable Imani Wilson Shabazz of Plan C Pills redefining what it means to be a sex-positive person and an advocate for reproductive rights all over the country. Her MO? She's all about open conversations and healthy education.
Imani grew up in the South, facing some tough challenges due to teen pregnancy stigma in the zeitgeist which was juxtaposed by her sex-positive mom educating her on all things informed sex. In the end, momma bear won (woohoo!) and Imani grew up to be a sex-positive empowered woman with sexual literacy as her weapon of choice. Huzzah!
Now, let's dive into the details. Imani is a graduate student at Temple University, pursuing a Ph.D. in Social and Behavioral Sciences. With an MPH from UCLA in Community Health Sciences, she's a powerhouse in the field. Imani's also a vital part of Plan C, working as a Partnerships and Engagement Consultant. She's all about creating community partnerships to raise awareness about abortion pill access nationwide. Basically, she’s advocating for us when our own Supreme Court won’t!
Imani's research is nothing short of groundbreaking! She's focused on comprehensive sex education reform, advocating for reproductive justice policies, and championing community-based birthing practices that prioritize the well-being of queer individuals of color.
This episode is filled with stories of resilience, education, and advocacy. It's a reminder that no matter where you come from, you have the power to shape your narrative. So, let's embrace empowerment together! Keep shining, keep learning, and keep fighting for what's right!
