Break the Bias Part 4: Understanding Reproductive Healthcare and Access Through Inspiring Examples, New York City

Break the Bias Part 4: Understanding Reproductive Healthcare and Access Through Inspiring Examples, New York City

In-Person Event | New York City
November 2, 6:00pm – 9:00pm ET


The fight to secure access to safe reproductive health care faces an uphill climb. With the Supreme Court’s decision in Dobbs v. Jackson eliminating the constitutional right to abortions and a flurry of restrictive legislation being proposed, passed, and enacted, the work can be both physically exhausting and emotionally draining. But there is reason to be optimistic.

Join fellow Council Leaders for a discussion on the future of reproductive health and justice. The discourse surrounding abortion can sometimes feel devisive, but reproductive rights is a conversation for all — one that includes issues of health, equal opportunity, justice, and civic action.

Inspiring organizations are already finding opportunities to affect change, such as Sister Song, Collective Power, Reproductive Health Access Project, and Caraway Health

This Jeffersonian-style salon, hosted by NationSwell Council members Tory Clarke, co-founder and Partner at Bridge Partners, and Beth Bengtson, CEO of Working for Women, is an opportunity to think deeply about how we might reimagine the future of reproductive health and rights, and ask how we can be inspired by those already working in this sphere to continue to take action in thoughtful ways that drive change.

This in-person event is for leaders and activists with a strong interest in equity, justice, and human rights. Light bites and drinks will be provided.
