In Our Own Words: Standing Together for Reproductive Rights, Health & Justice

Free Community Event! On January 21, 2016, the National Council of Jewish Women, Los Angeles is partnering with organizations from across LA and the nation to celebrate the 43rd anniversary of the landmark decision that ensured the right to abortion in the United States: Roe vs. Wade. At a time when

access to abortion and ALL reproductive health services is under threat, we are standing together for reproductive rights, health and justice.

Storytellers include: Jenna Brister, Becca Frucht, Lakhiya Hicks, Krissy Leahy, Margot Leitman, Will Weldon

Featured speakers include: Donna Benjamin, NCJW/LA; Jan Robinson Flint, Black Women for Wellness; Assemblymember Jimmy Gomez; Gabriela Valle, California Latinas for Reproductive Justice; Celinda M. Vázquez, Planned Parenthood Los Angeles

The evening includes receptions before and after the readings featuring wine, hors d’oeuvres, and desserts. These gathering periods are an opportunity for our guests to collaborate, take action, and share what reproductive rights, health, and justice mean to each of us–in our own words!
