Reproductive Justice confronts fascism – a panel discussion
Sunday, April 10
10 – 11:30 am
Hampshire College, Amherst MA
In the US, white supremacy and fascism are driving an all-out attack on civil and political rights, especially on communities of color, immigrants, and queer and trans youth. Extreme restrictions on abortion, undermining voting rights, and the rise in anti-trans legislation are all part of a shift even farther to the Right. While this is a scary political moment, it is also catalyzing fierce and widespread resistance. We invite you to join this inter-generational panel of reproductive justice activists and scholars who will discuss strategies for fighting white supremacy, and building towards liberation and justice.
Speakers will include:
Marlene Gerber Fried, professor of philosophy at Hampshire College, faculty director at Collective Power for Reproductive Justice, and co-founder of the National Network of Abortion Funds
Dr. Toni M. Bond, theologian and founding mother of the reproductive justice movement
Coya White Hat-Artichoker, a founding member of the First Nations Two Spirit Collective and program officer at the Ms. Foundation for Women
Leslie Lopez, abortion access organizer and Collective Power for Reproductive Justice board member.
Marisa Pizii, deputy director at Collective Power for Reproductive Justice and co-chair of the Abortion Rights Fund of Western Massachusetts
This in-person event is FREE and open to the public. Location information will be provided to attendees. Can’t attend in person? Look out for an event recording on our website later this spring.
