Reproductive Rights in CT Panel– Join ASHA for a discussion with Connecticut legislators, public policy advocates, and gynecological clinic representatives on April 30th at 6PM in Usdan 108! This event is co-sponsored by Wesleyan Democrats, Wesleyan Democratic Socialists, Wesleyan Clinic Escorts, the FGSS Department, & the Office of Survivor Advocacy and Community Education.
This panel seeks to educate students on the current legislative state of reproductive rights in CT, and how we can be active advocates both as students and voters. We hope to explore the potential effects of evolving legislation as it pertains to various reproductive issues such as access to abortion and contraception, especially for marginalized populations (ex. undocumented immigrants, trans/nb people, people of color, minors, etc.)
We will be serving DINNER at this event so please RSVP here if you plan on eating with us!

“Anyone who attends this workshop will conceptualize themselves as integral to the reproductive justice movement. They should learn from this workshop how to work with organizers and activists, to end reproductive oppression. They will understand how to be a useful part of Reproductive Justice for people of color who need a safe and nonjudgmental space to discuss their goals, fears, and hopes for having or not having children. It is our hope that Reproductive Justice will not only inform folks work with women and families of color encountering obstacles to reproductive freedom, but that more people will ultimately become change agents and active contributors to the movement for comprehensive Reproductive Justice.” – Christian Adams
