This week, Randi talked with La’Tasha Mayes and Jasmine Burnett of New Voices Pittsburgh. They’re working to bring Reproductive Justice to Western Pennsylvania and Northeast Ohio and beyond.
Reproductive Justice is their innovative framework to engage Black women and girls in local, national and global movement-building for human rights, racial and gender justice.
Their discussion began with an exploration of Reproductive Justice as a concept, significantly different than the fight for reproductive rights. They branch out to involving Black men in the effort, sexual violence and gender-based violence, imprisonment of Black citizens, and environmental issues.
NARAL’s The Morning After is a production of NARAL Pro-Choice Ohio.
Help build a pro-choice Ohio. Every day, NARAL Pro-Choice Ohio fights to protect access to the full range of reproductive health care options—including preventing unintended pregnancy, bearing healthy children, and safe & legal abortion care. We educate the public about the real threat to women’s healthcare posed by anti-choice legislation and policies. We mobilize pro-choice Ohioans to take political action to defend reproductive rights. And we are the voice for Ohio’s abortion clinics, helping them navigate the increasingly hostile climate created by extremist groups. But we need your help. As a member organization, we rely on your financial support to fund our important legislative, educational, and grassroots activities.
