January 22, 2022 marks the 49th anniversary of the passage of Roe v Wade, the monumental Supreme Court decision protecting a person’s right to a safe and legal abortion. With that ruling now threatened by the pending decision in Dobbs v Jackson Women’s Health Organization, it is important to expand our understanding of how restrictions on abortion rights impact Black, Indigenous and people of color, queer and transgender communities. Even with the protection of Roe v Wade, these communities have continued the fight for bodily autonomy, organizing against policies grounded in patriarchal and racist ideologies.
Expert panelists, in the areas of reproductive justice organizing, policy, and narrative change will lead a conversation by framing the fight for reproductive justice in the experiences of people deeply impacted by the threats to abortions rights, centering BIPOC women, trans, and gender nonconforming folks. Movement leaders will provide take-aways on what we can do from an organizing, policy, and community resilience standpoint, as well as focus on the power of narrative, culture, and how we talk about reproductive justice and sexual liberation in the world we imagine for our communities.
This webinar is part of the RaceAnd Webinar series, which puts race and racial justice at the forefront of our conversations and strategies by exploring the intersectionality and connectedness of race and racism with various identities, issue areas, and other systems of oppression.
