Over 400 laws have recently been introduced to restrict abortion rights and limit access. The attempts to defund Planned Parenthood threaten access for low income women most of all. At the same time, women of color must struggle daily to defend their children from death and injury by the police and the ravages of discrimination. Join us for a program that will acknowledge our past victories and defeats, and explore the way forward for real reproductive justice for all women. 

We will be watching La OPERACIÓN, a short film on sterilization of women in Puerto Rico followed by a talk with Johanna Fernandez, Assistant Director of Civil Liberties and Public Policy at Hampshire College and Gretchen Marino, student activist at CCSU.
