This event is part of the 2019-2020 WILL*/WGSS Speaker Series, and the Westhampton /WILL*/WGSS Womxn's Hisotry Month Speaker.  

Loretta Ross is the co-founder and former National Coordinator of the SisterSong Women of Color Reproductive Justice Collective. She is the co-author of Reproductive Justice: An Introduction and Undivided Rights: Women of Color Organize for Reproductive Justice. Reproductive Justice, a term coined by African American women following the 1994 International Conference on Population and Development in Cairo, utilizes a human rights framework to look at reproductive oppression, sterilization abuse, immigration restrictions, gun culture, rape culture, the prison-to-school pipeline, and more. Her talk engages all aspects of Reproductive Justice, the primary framework being used to move beyond the paralyzing debates of abortion politics. 

This event is open and free to the public. For questions, please contact Christy Farmer (cfarmer@richmond.edu).
