Honoring Mother Earth and Bodily Sovereignty: Reproductive Rights, Equity and Birth Justice
Presented in collaboration with Full Spectrum Capital Partners
The war on Mother Earth is rooted in the war on the bodies of women and gender non-binary people’s bodily autonomy. As our cultural system rooted in patriarchy and misogyny goes into deeper crisis, the war on women and the feminine is accelerating. As people of all genders rise up to defend abortion access, reproductive rights and justice, the deepening collaboration between the reproductive and birth justice communities is helping us take a holistic, united approach to defending individual and collective rights to bodily autonomy and self-determination. In this session, we will learn from leaders working at the intersection of Birth Justice and Reproductive Justice about how we all can play a role in supporting efforts to ensure that all people have access to reproductive freedom. Hosted by: Taj James, co-founder of Full Spectrum Capital. With: Tenesha Duncan, co-founder and Managing Director of Orchid Capital; Cynthia Gutierrez, Program Manager for UCSF’s Hub of Positive Reproductive and Sexual Health (HIVE) and Team Lily programs.
