Come learn more about how reproductive justice issues include so much more than the right to access a safe abortion. This conversation is critical for anti-violence advocates in these times. Reproductive justice has never been readily accessible nationally. This is particularly true for Black and Native American women who also experience the highest rates of sexual violence and pregnancy related deaths.
With ever-increasing government restrictions that further the criminalization and family regulation of survivors of intimate partner violence, our goal is to hold a learning space for advocates working with survivors of intimate partner violence.  We will hear the experiences and perspectives of advocates working on the front lines of reproductive and family justice in order to better identify and understand the movements' intersections, develop survivor centered responses and develop allyship.
