If you are in the New York City area, come check out our event:

Beyond Roe: Reproductive Justice and Sterilization Abuse in the Latina Community

NLIRH board member Dr. Elena Gutierrez will discuss her new book, Fertile Matters: The Politics of Mexican Origin Women’s Reproduction, and how racism and fears surrounding immigration and Mexican-origin women’s so-called “hyper-fertility” led to their coerced sterilization. Opening remarks, as well as the Q&A and discussion that follows, will draw connections between abortion and the involuntary sterilization of our communities, demonstrating how state policies and court decisions hinder reproductive autonomy and fuel our movement for reproductive justice.

Friday, January 25, 2008 6 pm – 8 pm
