Cobo Hall: DO-6B
Full Description: 

Around the country, women of color and feminist youth are organizing, advocating and achieving wins around reproductive justice. We’re working at the intersections of gender, race, class, health, education, immigration, media justice, environmental justice, and LGBT liberation in order to reach, empower, and mobilize our communities. In this workshop, we will work with participants to uncover a shared analysis of the reproductive justice framework and what it adds to our work as organizers for social justice. We will explore the potential to be found in a collaborative, multi-pronged movement strategy that includes organizing, advocacy, and transformative service provision. Most importantly, we will center our bodies/experiences in this work, and engage in activities that connect our whole selves to the world we want to see using art, storytelling, and multimedia tools. Reproductive justice is integral to and holds liberatory power in all of our movements, even if you’ve never explicitly talked about it before. Join the Third Wave Foundation, the Reproductive Justice Network, and our grant partners from around the country as we journey together from our personal and communal experiences to the movement for reproductive justice!
