About the Event
Reproductive Justice was founded by the Sister Song Women of Color Reproductive Justice Collective. Its core concepts according to its founders embodies three principles that state every person has
a) the right to maintain personal bodily autonomy
b) the right to give birth or to not give birth to a child and
c) the right to parent our children in healthy and safe environments.
Understanding these core values, we will dive deep into the history of oppression of Black and Indigenous birthing people and will unpack many of the epigentic traumas that have been woven into our lineage. Through story, we will share how we have built networks of resiliency as well as discuss practical tools and language we can begin to absorb into our practices for an equitable future.
Upon leaving this class you will
- Have a deeper understanding of the disparities that Black & Indigenous people face within our healthcare system
- Understand from a historical context the systemic oppression that creates the Western Medical Industrial Complex
- Comprehend Whiteness and Implicit Bias as more than just terms, but social constructs that contribute to systemic oppression
- Develop tools for building more networks of community resiliency
- Apprehend systemic & spiritual ways we can move forward to positively affect birth outcomes for Black, Indigenous & people of color.
