Mark your calendar for the third Wednesday of every month at 1:30 pm ET and check back to see what we’ll be learning each month.
Are voting rights and abortion rights related? Why is it important to link these issues in our advocacy? What can we do to lift up those most impacted by laws restricting these critical rights? Join NCJW for the second part of our special summer series of Lead! Organizing skills for grassroots activists webinars focusing on the intersection of Abortion& other critical issues. This training on Abortion& Voter Suppression will be led by Jessica Pinckney, Vice President of Government Affairs at In Our Own Voice: National Black Women’s Reproductive Justice Agenda on Wednesday, August 21 at 1:30pm ET (10:30am PT).
The topics we’ll be touching on include:
- Why racist voter suppression and gerrymandering leads to restrictive state abortion laws;
- How the criminalization of pregnant people — particularly people of color — results in voter suppression; and
- How to effectively advocate at the intersection of these issues.
