Virtual cafecito: Reproductive Justice, Latinas and the 112th Congress
It's virtual, meaning via conference call.
The November 2010 election was a mixed result for Latinas and reproductive health, but one message came through: Latino/as are a powerful and active voting bloc. Unfortunately, the new leadership in the House of Representatives have indicated their intent to drastically limit access and affordability of abortions, and have also taken aim at the health care reform law. But with progressive strongholds elected in California and other allies nationwide, opportunities do exist to continue reform focused on those most in need. The issue of reproductive health, contrary to the opposition of many conservatives, is paramount to women’s health.
Join us for a virtual cafecito as we discuss the challenges and opportunities the 112th Congress presents to those of us fighting for reproductive justice.
Rebecca Medina, Policy Analyst, will present analysis on the 112th Congress from a Latina reproductive justice perspective.
