An undeniable stain on U.S. history, with impacts continuing today, is that of racism with respect to reproductive justice.

Per APHA, the presenters will:
- Provide context of racism in reproductive care across multiple impacted groups;
- Share current advocacy approaches to advancing reproductive health equity; and
- Highlight current federal legislation that addresses the barriers to achieving reproductive justice.
