  • Power Forward: Annual Reproductive Justice Conference

    Monday, August 20, 2018 at 08:00 AM
    California Endowment Center

    Black Women For Wellness Annual Power Forward: Reproductive Justice Conference
    August 20, 2018, from 8:00am to 6:00pm, at the California Endowment.

    Conference Summary
    Each year Black Women for Wellness (BWW) hosts an annual conference to provide a space for Black and African American women to have open conversations and dialogue surrounding reproductive justice, which is simply the right to live the life that we choose, with well-being in all areas of our lives and the ability to define that for ourselves. Attendees leave empowered and better equipped to educate and mobilize their communities on important issues connected to our health and well-being.

    Our focus this year will include:
    Health Status Check
    These workshops will address the current reproductive health status of Black women & girls and offer insight into which levers (Power) need to be pushed and pulled to create interpersonal, structural, and institutional change.
    Healthy Policy Actions
    These workshops will provide skills and strategic actions to infiltrate and impact systems of oppression that affect our health and well-being. Federal laws are changing rapidly, and these changes are impacting state laws and local resource distribution.
    Youth Track
    These workshops will focused on providing teenagers and young adults (ages 14-22) the skills to build Power within their communities and schools.
    Power Talks
    During these workshops we are asking each speaker to share their work and how it impacts reproductive justice and/or the reproductive health status of women & girls.
