Reproductive Justice: Addressing the Inequality FILLING
Limited Capacity filling up

Reproductive Justice is the human right to control our bodies, our sexuality, our gender, our work and our reproduction. It is a framework created by women of color that expands beyond the womb, encompassing the many intersections of having a child, not having a child and being able to raise a family with dignity and respect. Addressing the wide range of reproductive justice inequities requires an intersectional approach that recognizes the history and barriers that communities of color face. This workshop will look at everyday barriers faced by marginalized Black women and girls from a Reproductive Justice lens and demonstrate how you can implement an Reproductive Justice framework in your own grassroot/campaign work.
