The Road to Reproductive Rights: Perspectives from Movement Leaders

Wednesday, March 01, 2023, 12:00pm – 1:00pm EST

A group of philanthropists concerned about the Dobbs decision came together last summer. Since then Judy Freidman in LA, and Rebecca Shafron from the Charles and Lynn Schusterman Family Philanthropies have agreed to chair our Reproductive Healthcare Group. They have put together a new learning session for this group. As attacks on gender and reproductive equity continue, hear from leaders at NARAL, If/When/How: Lawyering for Reproductive Justice, and the National Network of Abortion Funds. During this panel, they will discuss the road ahead for reproductive rights, the strategies to protect abortion care, and how we can get involved.
