Fertile Ground: Exploring the Intersection Between the Reproductive and Environmental Justice Movements

Thursday, February 23, 2012
12:00PM - 2:00PM
American University Washington College of Law, Room 603
4801 Massachusetts Avenue, NW, Washington, DC


Women and communities living in economically disadvantaged areas disproportionately suffer exposure to harmful chemicals from environmental hazards, which pose serious consequences for their reproductive health. Both the reproductive justice and environmental justice movements focus on improving socioeconomic and environmental conditions for communities living in poverty. Despite their similarities, these movements have historically operated on parallel tracks, often working in isolation. Join us for a discussion with environmental experts and reproductive health practitioners who will explore the intersection of these two movements and consider strategies for future collaboration.
