A Teen Parent Inclusive Movement

The ability to decide when and how to have children is a crucial aspect of the reproductive justice movement. Throughout history, some women have been discouraged, coerced and outright prevented from being parents, including teen parents. Young people who have children are often stigmatized, shamed, and disenfranchised in their role as parents. This workshop seeks to foster a conversation on the intersectional issues impacting young parents, explore the contributions that young parents bring to the reproductive justice movement, and discuss the ways in which stigma against young parents is upheld through the reproductive control of youth.
