Fulfilling Roe’s Promise
Roe v. Wade Commemorative Event
Thursday, February 11, 1 p.m. via Zoom
In 1973, Roe v. Wade established the legal right to abortion, assuring reproductive freedom. But equity and access to reproductive health care have been steadily restricted since the case was decided 48 years ago. Now we have the opportunity to change that. Now we can make history here in New Jersey with the newly introduced Reproductive Freedom Act.
Roe v. Wade is under constant threat, but the reality is that we need so much more than its protections provide. Join us as we discuss how proactive legislation protects and expands reproductive healthcare for all.
Speakers will include:
Assemblywoman Mila Jasey, Deputy Speaker of the New Jersey State Assembly
Monica Edwards, Federal Policy Manager at URGE: Unite for Reproductive & Gender Equity
Smita Nadia Hussain, Senior Campaign Director at MomsRising
Event is free and open to all.
Zoom information will be send the day before the event.
