Our Communities Are Not Dumping Grounds: Environmental and Reproductive Justice

What role does pollution play in our reproductive lives? How have companies profited from exposing Black women to harmful toxins and hidden chemicals linked to cancer, infertility, birth defects, and other serious health problems through “feminine care” products? How does climate change exacerbate "natural" disasters, and why are people of color at the greatest risk of having their lives disrupted? This workshop will examine urgent environmental issues with a close look at the economic and racial inequities that disproportionately impact communities of color and fenceline communities. From building resiliency and political power in fenceline communities to fighting back against toxic assault and reclaiming our right to safe products, it’s time for reproductive justice advocates to invest deeply in environmental justice!
