We Still Remember: The Black Reproductive Justice Agenda and Fight for Bodily
Over thirty years ago, Black women led a movement for reproductive freedom with the seminal brochure We Remember: African American Women for Reproductive Freedom. Over the past year, we’ve seen some of the most restrictive and regressive reproductive health care policies of our lifetime; however, the movement for bodily autonomy is more alive than ever. Hear from reproductive justice advocates about the work that is being done to restore and improve reproductive health and wellbeing and how communities can best support it.
