In case you dozed off in your Administrative Law class, it’s time to brush up — administrative advocacy is one of our go-to tools in the fight against reproductive oppression. Nondiscrimination protections, health care access, benefits and safety for immigrants — all of these essential components of reproductive justice have come under fire from the Trump Administration through administrative action, but the good news is that when it comes to pushing back, anyone can do it!

What is administrative advocacy? What is a public comment? How can these tools be used to advance reproductive justice? Join this webinar to learn the basics of administrative advocacy from experienced legal advocates and get tips and advice on how to add this often under-utilized skill to your reproductive justice lawyering toolkit.

Speakers:

Candace Gibson, Staff Attorney, National Health Law Program
Mashayla Hays, If/When/How RJ Fellow, New Voices for Reproductive Justice and Women’s Law Project
