Posted on November 3, 2016

We’re excited to announce the release of a curriculum focused on 
historical and contemporary resistance to forced sterilizations. This 
project was conceived and started in 2014 by intern Teeanna Munro as an 
educational resource to connect forced sterilizations in California’s 
prisons to historical uses of the practice in Black, Native American and 
Puerto Rican communities. The curriculum contains audio and paper 
archival materials from the Freedom Archives and includes activities 
that incorporate and develop different skill sets, such as critical 
thinking, active reading, active listening and expository or persuasive 
essay writing, all with the intention of deepening understanding of this 
recent history and its lessons.

We have created this curriculum in order to provide historical context 
for forced sterilization, illuminate the voices of those directly 
affected by forced sterilization, and generate community discussion and 
activism around women’s liberation and reproductive justice. You can 
download the free curriculum 
and resource guide 
and check out our entire archival collection on forced sterilization 
here <http://search.freedomarchives.org/search.php?view_collection=318>.

We would also like to thank Vera Tykulsker and Carli Lowe for their 
invaluable contributions to this resource.
