Right now, people are aware that a foundational piece of autonomous decision making has been lost, but people are less aware that there are many ways bodily autonomy is under threat through different systems – health care, the family regulation system, Indian Health Services, and carceral systems. This webinar will present a conversation between four community-based legal experts who will examine both how systems threaten people’s ability to make decisions about their bodies, families, and communities and how philanthropy may support the ecosystem of activism toward reproductive and birth justice.

Panelists:

  • Farah Diaz-Tello, JD, Senior Counsel and Legal Director, If/When/How: Lawyering for Reproductive Justice
  • Indra Lusero, MA, JD, Founder and Executive Director, Elephant Circle
  • Erin Miles Cloud, JD, Co-Founder and Co-Director, Movement for Family Power
  • Maymangwa Flying Earth, JD – Founder, Birthing Sovereignty

You will walk away with a clearer understanding of the law and policy work being done on the ground to transform the architecture of our health and human service systems, and how you as a funder can partner with advocacy groups to advance bodily autonomy and full spectrum care for pregnant, birthing people, and their families.
