“The Essentials of Reproductive Justice: Access, Autonomy, Action”

Members of the Case Western Reserve University community are invited to “The Essentials of Reproductive Justice: Access, Autonomy, Action,” a series of conversations held Tuesday, Oct. 11, from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. in the Tinkham Veale University Center ballroom.

This event has been specifically created for the CWRU campus by the community to offer a basic understanding of what reproductive justice is and all the ways in which reproductive rights and reproductive health can be affected by social injustices.

Hosted by the Inamori International Center for Ethics and Excellence, the Flora Stone Mather Center for Women and the Baker-Nord Center for the Humanities, this event will include a series of conversations, along with a walking narrative exhibit and resource/take action fair.

Reproductive justice, as defined by SisterSong, is the “human right to maintain personal bodily autonomy, have children, not have children, and parent the children we have in safe and sustainable communities.” The reproductive justice framework recognizes the ways reproductive rights and health can be affected by other factors: from race, ethnicity, religion, sexual orientation, or identity to employment, disability, or financial status, and even one’s zip code.
