If/When/How and the Birth Rights Bar Association (BRBA) are excited to announce a four-part Birth Justice Attorney Training series.
The second part of the Birth Justice Attorney Training series, Understanding Obstetric Violence and Obstetric Racism will build on the histories of oppression and resistance discussed in the first session, with a deep dive into obstetric racism and obstetric violence. Speakers will discuss how these forms of harm specifically manifest in the U.S. and share tools lawyers and advocates can use to identify and interrupt harm.
The virtual training series builds on our Repro Legal Helpline’s ongoing commitment to meet our callers’ needs in a rapidly changing legal landscape.
Through this series, we hope to amass a group of lawyers and advocates who have the skills to hold providers and state actors accountable for the harms they enact. You’ll also learn how to support people to understand their legal rights during pregnancy and birth, how to advocate for themselves and their communities, and how they can respond to experiences of discrimination, mistreatment, and violence.
Learn from people with lived experiences and expertise in how the reproductive justice and birth justice frameworks can be used to support and champion change for pregnant and birthing people.
