This conference, co-sponsored with the New York Women’s Foundation, will explore how reproductive justice and women’s economic security are inextricably linked and will highlight the work being done in these areas by 17 organizations here in New York. With the leadership predominantly of women of color and young people, these organizations focus on diverse issues within the reproductive justice framework, including immigrant rights, environmental justice, alternatives to violence and incarceration, education, community health, economic justice, labor reform, and HIV/AIDS prevention and education. Seventeen different organizations, all involved in important and innovative work for reproductive justice across NYC, will present on their work, their organizing models, and how they’ve been able to effect change. The conference will also feature a panel discussion with leaders in the field of reproductive justice research, advocacy, and activism.

With speakers from: African Hope Committee; Brooklyn Young Mothers Collective; DAMAYAN Migrant Workers Association; Girls Education & Mentoring Services; Girls for Gender Equity; Love Heals; New York Civil Liberties Union; Red Hook Initiative; RightRides; Sauti Yetu Center for African Women; Sistas on the Rise; SMART; Sylvia Rivera Law Project; Voces Latina; Women’s HIV Collaborative; Young Women of Color HIV/AIDS Coalition; and Youth Ministries for Peace and Justice.
