Reproductive Justice: What Social Workers Need to Know

NASW New York State

10 a.m.-12:30 p.m. ET

As assaults on reproductive health continue across the country and the United States stands on the precipice of the overturning of Roe v. Wade, the time is now for social workers to learn about the tenets of Reproductive Justice (RJ). A framework developed by minoritized groups in the 1990s, RJ moves the abortion discourse beyond “choice” and considers the elements that contribute to or hinder true bodily autonomy: the right to have a child, the right to not have a child, and the right raise a child in safe and healthy environments. As RJ especially considers the impact of legislation, policy, and intervention on vulnerable communities, it is especially relevant during today’s socio-political climate.

This course will introduce, define, and explore the tenets of Reproductive Justice and how they directly apply to social work advocacy and practice. Concrete suggestions for advocacy and intervention will also be provided.

Learning Objectives: After the completion of this webinar, participants will be able to:
  • understand how Reproductive Justice applies directly to social work practice;
  • identify and define the tenets of Reproductive Justice
  • apply the tenets of Reproductive Justice to appreciate the impact of the overturning ofRoe v. Wade on historically minoritized communities; and
  • identify concrete ways of advocating for Reproductive Justice.
