Organizers

If/When/How: Lawyering for Reproductive Justice
National Lawyers Guild

We are already in the reality where punitive state responses are the biggest threat to people who end their pregnancies. The same communities — people of color and low income people — who are targets of structural racism, over-criminalization and over surveillance, are the communities most likely to be targeted for pregnancy related criminalization. This webinar is intended to provide information to attorneys about the legal and policy landscape regarding criminalization of self-managed abortion, and introduce strategies to fight back on behalf of their clients.

Speakers: Rebecca Wang, J.D., If/When/How Helpline Counsel and Yveka Pierre, Esq., If/When/How Litigation Counsel

Please note: This webinar is for NLG members only.
