Have you been angry and frustrated for years about pink ribbon promotions? Have you just started to feel uncomfortable about pink ribbon products but you’re not quite sure why? Are you looking for a positive outlet for your frustration with pink in October?
Join us next month for our free community webinar to learn more about how pink ribbon culture distracts us from making real progress on breast cancer – and what we can do about it.
Every year, corporations jump on the pink ribbon bandwagon and take advantage of our goodwill to make us more “aware” of breast cancer – as if we all weren’t more than aware of this devastating disease.
We’re known for our educational programming that helps people connect the dots about the politics of breast cancer and why we aren’t making more progress to end the epidemic. This unique webinar will offer a “deep dive” exploration into how pink ribbon culture fails women as well as offering a positive alternative vision towards action that will really help address and end the breast cancer epidemic.
Our executive director, Karuna Jaggar, will join me for this illuminating discussion and you’ll have an opportunity to ask all your burning pink ribbon questions.
RSVP for our free webinar today: Wednesday October 8th, 2014 at 10am PDT/1pm EDT or Thursday October 9th, 2014 at 3:30pm PDT/6:30pm EDT.
For your convenience, we are offering the webinar at two different times. Click on the links above to register for the time and day that works for you. Please remember to check your time zone.
Change happens when we come together and demand it. I look forward to “seeing” you this October to demand change in how we address the breast cancer epidemic.
