Countless folks in the US are reeling by the Supreme Court decision that overturned Roe v Wade, a law that gave many, although not all, women the right to choose to terminate her pregnancy. The seriousness of this decision is also ricocheting around the world.
Monday 27 June at 1PM US Pacific–listen to the first of a 2-part program on the overturning of Roe v Wade on Women’s Magazine on KPFA Radio 94.1FM and www.kpfa.org on the Web. Monica Simpson, Jenny Johnson-Riley, and I will be discussing the history of Roe v Wade and the movements that made the law possible, the specific implications of SCOTUS decision for Women of Color and rape and incest survivors, and how to take action.
My guests will be Monica Simpson, a queer Black activist, artist, and executive director of SisterSong Women of Color Reproductive Justice Collective, the United States’ largest organization dedicated to reproductive justice for women of color and Jenny Johnson-Riley, an activist and researcher of the anti-rape movement for the past 15 years, counsels survivors and perpetrators of sexual violence and works as public policy consultant.
