Description:

A panel discussion featuring five activists and alumni working on issues of reproductive justice in Chicago who will share their experiences working across a range of organizations and projects--including the Chicago Abortion Fund (CAF), Community Bond Fund, Howard Brown Health Center, Chicago Women’s Health Center (CWHC), Illinois Caucus for Adolescent Health (ICAH) and Northwestern’s Center for Awareness, Response, and Education (CARE) and Sexual Health and Assault Peer Educators (SHAPE)--that represent the capaciousness of reproductive politics as it is constituted by a resurgent reproductive justice movement.

Panelist: CAF board members Devin Sizer (NU alum) and Megan Jeyifo, Co-executive Director of the Community Bond Fund Sharlyn Grace (NU alum), therapist at Howard Brown Health and former reproductive justice educator at ICAH and intern at CWHC Sarah Daoud (NU alum), and advisor to SHAPE and staff member at CARE Kyra Jones (NU Alum).

This panel is organized in collaboration with One Book One Northwestern, whose featured book in 2018-19 is Margaret Atwood’s The Handmaid’s Tale.
