RJ Squared: Racial Justice is Reproductive Justice” is a presentation aimed at educating attendees on the interconnectedness of racial justice and reproductive justice in order to facilitate conversations about power and privilege on campus and within the community. 

Broadly defined, Reproductive Justice is the complete physical, mental, spiritual, political, social, and economic well-being of women and girls, based on the full achievement and protection of women's human rights. When talking about RJ, it is crucial to discuss the racial dynamics that exist in local communities as well the country as a whole. IWH and BLSA hope to use RJ2 as an opportunity to bring reproductive justice values to life by centering the voices of those most affected.

The RJ2 presentation will be conducted by If/When/How’s National Director of Campus and Community Programs, Lina Houston. Following the presentation there will be a panel discussion centered on local issues of Reproductive Justice affecting the Pittsburgh community.

Food and beverages will be provided. Hope to see you there

This event is open to the public.
