On Tuesday, November 16, Color Of Change, the nation’s largest online racial justice organization, will hold a press briefing ahead of oral arguments in Dobbs v. Jackson Women's Health Organization -- a landmark abortion rights case in which the ruling could potentially overturn Roe v. Wade.

Speakers from Color Of Change, Physicians for Reproductive Health, National Advocates for Pregnant Women, Access Reproductive Care, and SPARK Reproductive Justice Now will discuss the case and the potential implications for Black people who will be disproportionately impacted.

Black women, trans, and non-binary people across the country are being denied access to basic forms of reproductive healthcare. The outcome of this case could further endanger the rights and the lives of pregnant people, particularly in Black, brown, and Indigenous communities who are already targeted by police, prosecutors, and other bad actors in the criminal legal system. This briefing will bring together racial and reproductive justice advocates and health practitioners to discuss the implications of the case from a racial justice perspective, concerns with the existing framing of Roe v. Wade, and what criminalization might look like if Roe were overturned.

WHO:

  • Erika Maye, Deputy Senior Director of Criminal Justice Campaigns at Color Of Change
  • Dr. Jamila Perritt, Chief Executive Officer at Physicians for Reproductive Health
  • Lynn Paltrow, Executive Director at National Advocates for Pregnant Women
  • Quita Tinsley Peterson, Co-Director at Access Reproductive Care-Southeast
  • Agbo Ikor, Policy and Advocacy Director at SPARK Reproductive Justice Now!

WHEN:

Tuesday, November 16 from 11:00 AM to 12:00 PM ET
