In the wake of the resurgence of the Black Liberation movement, there have been calls to defund the police, divest from police and reimagine a world with abolition frameworks. The reproductive justice movement is premised on ensuring that people can raise children and families in a safe place. How are these movements connected? At this event, three experts committed to abolition and reform weigh in how these movements can foster a better future for Black people.
We will be joined by Nnennaya Amuchie (they/them), a reproductive justice attorney and organizer with the DC chapter of the Movement for Black Lives, Preston Mitchum (he/him), the Director of Policy at URGE: Unite for Reproductive & Gender Equity, Whit Washington (they/them), a public defender in DC and founder of the Project for Transgender Incarcerated Survivors.
