“I had such a great time and learned a lot both on the tour and talking with you afterwards.”
“I am really glad that I joined in this great tour to learn more about NYC and American histories on reproductive health and freedom. It is very knowledgeable, memorable and insightful. I am inspired by those brave women who fight for women’s rights. No matter how hard it is we should not give up.”
“Thank you very much for the wonderful tour.”
“What a great tour!! Thank you for this informative tour of Reproductive Freedom in Lower Manhattan. While this will always be an important tour, the timing of it is perfect, given what recently happened in Alabama. [Our tour guide] was lovely and so knowledgeable about the fight for reproductive health and justice. She does an awesome job in connecting the past and the present. Also, 10% of the payment for the tour goes to the New York Abortion Access Fund. This is a highly recommended tour!”
“Thank you for the powerful tour! Great meeting and learning, and inspiring the impressive group of people who assembled yesterday.”
