Understanding Reproductive Justice: Reclaiming Choice and Broadening the Movement
Thursday, October 11, 2007
How are reproductive rights linked to social justice? What do racism and economic injustice have to do with reproductive justice, and how do we even define it? How can we and why should we move beyond a pro-choice framework even as a woman’s right to choose is increasingly coming under attack? How can we build a movement for women of color for reproductive justice in the United States? Join The Public Square at the Illinois Humanities Council, Illinois Caucus for Adolescent Health and the Jane Addams Hull-House Museum for a discussion on the future of reproductive justice.
Panelists include Toni Bond, African American Women Evolving; Gaylon Alcaraz, Chicago Abortion Fund; and representatives from Young Women’s Empowerment Project and Illinois Caucus for Adolescent Health.
