Tickets are still available for Toward Reproductive Justice and Reproductive Self-Determination, a LEAF event on January 25, 2021 from 7pm to 8:30pm EST.
You can support LEAF while learning from a fantastic panel featuring:
- Alisa Lombard, lawyer and lead counsel on a proposed class action pertaining to the forced sterilization of Indigenous women in Saskatchewan
- Akinisie Qumaluk, a midwife from Puvirnituq in Nunavik, Quebec
- Hadiya Roderique, speaker, writer, consultant, and EDI researcher
- With Moderator Joanna Erdman, an Associate Professor and the MacBain Chair in Health Law and Policy at the Schulich School of Law
This panel discussion will explore the origins, meaning, and importance of reproductive justice. Our speakers will discuss how reproductive justice is and is not present in their lives and their work, as well as in current movements for gender equality. They will discuss how we can work to ensure reproductive care is gender-affirming as well as culturally affirming. They will unpack how we can take steps to decolonize the reproductive justice movement, and work towards reproductive self-determination.
To register for the Panel, please visit our Eventbrite page. Tiered ticket pricing is available for young professionals, students, seniors, and low-income/under-employed individuals.
