This week, Gabe and Jaime are joined by Jessica Roach, Executive Director of ROOTT: Restoring Our Own Through Transformation. ROOTT is a Black women-led reproductive justice organization dedicated to collectively restoring our well-being through self-determination, collaboration, and resources to meet the needs of women and families within communities. Support their work here, or connect on Facebook, Twitter, & Instagram.
Jessica’s visit comes days after a devastating look at maternal mortality was published in USA Today: Hospitals know how to protect mothers. They just aren’t doing it.

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.
