Professional Training

By connecting people and resources across the legal community we can build more collective power to realize reproductive justice for all.

If/When/How seeks to bring more legal professionals into the reproductive justice movement because we  believe that the movement is stronger when we work together across disciplines. With our webinars and trainings, we help  lawyers to understand that the legal system is often a barrier to true justice, to appreciate the need for a variety of strategies for effectuating change, and to shape law and policy that enables everyone to decide if, when, and how to create families. Our issue briefs and reports are tools you can use to learn more about RJ issues and how the law impacts them. Deepen your engagement by joining our network and volunteering for a pro bono project.
