Join Women’s Studies faculty and community members in a roundtable conversation about the implications of the anticipated rollback of Roe vs. Wade, the landmark 1973 Supreme Court decision that made abortion legal in all states in the US.  In Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization, currently under consideration, the Court may decide that states have a right to restrict abortion access in more rigid ways than current federal precedent allows.  Come share your opinions, observations, and ideas about how to get involved in the ongoing struggle for reproductive justice in the U.S.
