Reproductive Justice – Health, Rights, & Social Justice

Reproductive justice is a feminist framework, developed by women of color, that center’s the needs of the most marginalized and affirms our human right to bodily autonomy and to live healthy lives with access to the necessary physical, mental, political, economic, social, and sexual resources for the well-being of all people. The three core values of reproductive justice are the right to have a child, the right to not have a child, and the right to parent a child or children in safe and healthy environments.  

Join us in celebration of Women’s History Month and Social Work Month! This discussion will examine and highlight the disparities in care, access, and how it affects Black maternal health and mortality rates. Attendees will also understand the reproductive justice framework, learn about access and advocacy in Connecticut, and the barriers students have in accessing care. 

This panel is co-sponsored with the UConn Foundation and is part of the #ThisIsAmerica series.* 

This is a free event and registration is required here

Wednesday, 6-8pm, Zoom AND watch party at the Women’s Center
