Johns Hopkins: Guest Lecture on U.S. Reproductive Rights | Wednesday January 22

Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health is hosting a guest lecture on reproductive rights on Wednesday, January 22.

Ms. Sequoia Ayala, director of policy and advocacy programs at the Atlanta-based advocacy organization SisterLove, will discuss reproductive justice in the U.S.

Ms. Ayala will present an overview history of the pro-choice movement and discuss reproductive justice as it relates to abortion and how reproductive justice is distinct from a public health or pro-choice perspective. She will describe the legal precedent surrounding abortion in the U.S., current efforts to overturn the landmark Roe v. Wade decision, and the policy and practice implications of threats to abortion access for women of color and poor women.

The event is co-sponsored by the Bloomberg School’s Office of Public Health Practice and Training; the Bloomberg School’s department of population, family and reproductive health; the Bloomberg School’s Student Assembly; and the Public Health Students For Reproductive Justice.
