rePRO Justice for Women of Color
WEDNESDAY, AUGUST 12, 2020
rePRO examines reproductive healthcare injustices faced by women of color.
Mirroring so many other societal disparities, equal access to reproductive healthcare and rights remains grossly substandard for women of color in America. Topics include infant mortality rates, sexual education for black youth, and illegal sterilization. It’s time for reproductive justice.
