The current landscape: anti-choice lawmakers in the White House, Congress and state legislatures across the country attempting to dismantle reproductive rights and access. These changes target those populations that are already marginalized in our society, including women of color and low-income individuals.

The speaker will focus on what the reproductive rights and justice movements look like in 2017 and what we are fighting for. She will discuss the importance of state and local action to protect reproductive rights and health, and what we all can do this year to help pass meaningful state legislation that will advance abortion rights and contraceptive access in New York State.
