Chairing “Roe at 45: When Rights ≠ Access” featuring Dr. Willie Parker Coming on Sunday, January 14, 2018

For the fourth year, I am leading organizing efforts with NCJWLA to recognize the anniversary of the landmark 1973 Roe v Wade Supreme Court decision in favor of a woman’s right to an abortion. Last year, the “Rally to Save Roe” drew over 500 people and we partnered with dozens of reproductive justice organizations in Los Angeles and beyond. The night included an on the spot advocacy training for 200 people and led to many individual and organizational partnerships in the resistance to the 45th president and the anti-health, anti-woman, and anti-environment congressional and local leaders who currently hold power. These partnerships span Los Angeles, the state, and the nation.

Join us on January 14, 2018 for “Roe at 45: When Rights ≠ Access,” an evening featuring an audience interactive program that powerfully illustrates the experiences of women seeking abortions and the legal, financial, and personal barriers they face together with the consequences of these barriers.
