Cascades Abortion Support Collective
Cascades Abortion Support Collective (CASC) provides free physical, emotional, informational, and logistic support to individuals accessing abortion in the Portland/Vancouver area. We support people regardless of age, income, gender identity, religious belief, relationship status, or disability status. All people deserve access to free, nonjudgmental support and care at any point in their abortion experience.
Along with providing direct support, CASC also organizes in Portland around reproductive justice issues and supports organizations that envision a better world based in collective liberation.
We are working toward a world that honors every person’s bodily autonomy and capacity to make the reproductive decision that is best for them. We strive to help create a world where obstacles to care, autonomy, community, and survival are removed.
For our collective, reproductive justice means active participation in dismantling the barriers to care and community that marginalized groups face under oppressive systems of white supremacy, patriarchy, and capitalism. We support abortion on demand and without apology.
