Reproductive Justice as Human Rights with Loretta Ross

Wednesday, October 26th: 4:15-6pm via Zoom

Reproductive Justice moves beyond choice and access to abortion. The term was coined by African American women, including Ross, in 1994. It is a broader term that uses a human rights framework and also looks at reproductive oppression, sterilization abuse, immigration restrictions, gun culture, rape culture, the prison-to-school pipeline, etc.

Loretta Ross is an award-winning, nationally-recognized expert on racism and racial justice, women's rights, and human rights. Her work emphasizes the intersectionality of social justice issues and how intersectionality can fuel transformation.
