Watch: “20 Condoms” for repro justice

The Oakland-based reproductive justice group Forward Together has released an awesome mini-remix of Macklemore’s hit “Thriftshop.” The great video advocates for safe, protected sex and frequent STI tests without any of the preachiness or scaremongering I remember from my middle school sex ed days/that scene in Mean Girls. Check out the video below (transcript after the jump), and tell us in the comments: what other youth-driven repro justice art should we know about?

But Pablos’ detention is also a reminder that immigration is a reproductive justice issue and that we have to fight like hell against an Administration that’s hell-bent on endangering the health and well-being of immigrant women and our families.
