The Down There Health Collective is a group working to better understand our bodies and care for ourselves and each other in a holistic way. Down There strives to create safe, comfortable and supportive environments to learn and share information around health, sexuality and gender. We explore body and mental health issues that too often go unaddressed.
Based in DC, collective members facilitate workshops, provide affordable or free speculums to individuals or organizations, and create and distribute health-related information and zines.
Contact us at: email@example.com
