Reproductive Justice in the Age of Mass Incarceration

What does reproductive (in)justice look like behind bars? How are certain communities disproportionately impacted by policing and incarceration? And how can we hold onto a dream of abolition while making real, tangible changes in the lives of those most impacted by mass incarceration? Focusing on the lived experiences of women, trans, and gender non-conforming people in prisons and jails, this session will expand participants' understanding of how sexism, racism, classism, and gender-based violence underpin systems of mass incarceration. Speakers will discuss innovative organizing models for mobilizing both inside and outside of the prison system for justice for those who are currently or formerly incarcerated and their families.
