BEYOND ROE:

Intersection of Abortion Access, Economic Justice, and Religious Liberty

Join us, our partners, and our community on Sunday, January 28, 2024, at 5:00pm as we rise against the growing policy-based assault on abortion access!
This event will provide both in-person and virtual options.

It’s been over a year since the U.S. Supreme Court eliminated the constitutional right to abortion.

Join us on Sunday, January 28, 2024, for a thought-provoking and enlightening event that delves into the intersection of abortion access, economic justice, and religious liberty.

In today's complex world, these topics are more interconnected than ever before, and it's crucial to explore the multifaceted aspects surrounding them. We have gathered experts, advocates, and thought leaders to engage in a meaningful discussion, and we invite you to be a part of this critical conversation.

We have allowed a small but loud group to dominate the narrative for far too long. It is time we reclaimed it—this means removing educational, financial, and legislative roadblocks for pregnant people and creating meaningful opportunities to join the movement.

 

General Admission: $15
(All proceeds will support individuals needing cash assistance related to economic costs or abortion medication.)

Keynote Speaker: Rabbi Mira Rivera

Rabbi Mira Rivera (pronouns she/siya/ella) is the first Filipina-American woman to be ordained at The Jewish Theological Seminary with an M.A. in Jewish Studies.

In February 2023 she joined the JCC Harlem as their Rabbi-in-Residence with the mission of growing an in-person Shabbat community of learners, daveners, and organizers that is truly welcoming to those who have been on the margins. She mentors young adults in the Jews of Color Initiative Leadership Fellowship as they gain firsthand experience working in the Jewish non-profit sector in New York City.

Mistress of Ceremony: Gabrielle Brown

Gabrielle is the Program Coordinator for the Maternal and Infant Health program for Black Women for Wellness.

She earned her Bachelor’s degree in Health Administration from California State University, Northridge, and her Masters degree in Public Administration from California State University, Long Beach. Due to her experience working closely with the community in South Central, much of her academic research focused on the health disparities and inequalities that Black people experience in Los Angeles.
