Reproductive Justice Beyond Bars

Participants will delve into our criminal justice and child welfare systems to learn how historically and currently, low-income, immigrant, queer and native peoples are forced to navigate child welfare systems that make the right to have a family a matter of proving their fitness to parent. Panelists will discuss the rights and injustices faced by incarcerated and previously incarcerated sex workers, the foster care-to-prison pipeline, and state sanctioned violence against pregnant and birthing people within the criminal justice system. Participants will learn about transformative legal and community based strategies for change including video, policy, & advocacy activities aimed at building leadership and mobilizing individuals in prison.
