Reproductive Justice with Loretta Ross RSVP
Reproductive justice is an exciting, fresh approach to reproductive politics in the U.S., based on bringing the human rights framework home to apply it to women and gender politics. This lecture will discuss the origins of reproductive justice, its human rights foundation, and applicability to current and future reproductive health, rights, and justice issues.
Loretta Ross is a Visiting Associate Professor in Women’s Studies at various colleges teaching courses on “White Supremacy in the Age of Trump” and “Reproductive Justice Praxis”. She started her career in activism and social change in the 1970s, working at the National Football League Players’ Association, the D.C. Rape Crisis Center, the National Organization for Women (NOW), the National Black Women’s Health Project, the Center for Democratic Renewal (National Anti-Klan Network), the National Center for Human Rights Education, and SisterSong Women of Color Reproductive Justice Collective, until retiring as an organizer in 2012 to teach about activism. She is one of the creators of the term "Reproductive Justice" coined by African American women in 1994 that has transformed reproductive politics in the U.S. Her passion transforms anger into social justice to change the world.
