Reproductive Justice: Activists, Advocates, Academics in Ann Arbor
University of Michigan Women's Studies Conference
May 29-31, 2013
Advancing reproductive justice via activism, advocacy and academia.
Join us for an innovative meeting to advance reproductive justice by exploring the intersections of activism, advocacy, and academia. To date, advocacy groups have advanced reproductive justice agendas around the country and the world. We believe it is time for academic institutions to step up to support their work by providing a forum for meaningful dialogue and the development of research agendas and applied projects.
This meeting will allow advocates, activists and academics to collectively explore how we can design research informed by advocacy and generate useful and reliable data and findings that promote reproductive justice.
Over the course of the conference we will:
1) exchange knowledge and recognize points of convergence and difference;
2) create and energize new relationships; and
3) develop collaborative research agendas informed by advocacy.
