Clayman Conversations Presents: Anti-Abortion Movements and the Future of Roe v. Wade

October 5, 2021 - 4:00pm to 5:30pm
Zoom Webinar

Access to safe and legal abortion is rapidly declining across the U.S., and gains made by reproductive justice advocates are eroding. With Roe v. Wade hanging in the balance, anti-choice organizers are continuing to gain momentum at federal and local levels. In this Clayman Conversations event, speakers will address the gender and racial dimensions of the fight for reproductive justice. What are the racial dimensions of anti-abortion organizing, reproductive justice, and the fight for Roe v. Wade? Why has the far right used abortion as a battering ram in the U.S., and what might be the outcomes of this strategy?

Speakers:Melissa MurrayNew York University School of LawAuthor, "Race-ing Roe: Reproductive Justice, Racial Justice, and the Battle for Roe v. Wade"Jennifer HollandUniversity of Oklahoma, Department of HistoryAuthor, "Tiny You: A Western History of the Anti-Abortion Movement"

The event is free and open to the public.
