Description

Join the Jean Nidetch Women's Center (JNWC), Center for Social Justice (CSJ), and Students Organizing Diversity Activities (SODA) for a powerful talk by Loretta Ross!

Join us for lunch as Loretta speaks on intersectionality of social justice issues and how this affects social change and service delivery in the movement against dating and domestic violence. 

Loretta J. Ross was a co-founder and the National Coordinator of the SisterSong Women of Color Reproductive Justice Collective from 2005-2012, a network founded in 1997 of women of color and allied organizations that organize women of color in the reproductive justice movement. She is one of the creators of the term "Reproductive Justice" coined by African American women in 1994 following the International Conference on Population and Development in Cairo, Egypt. She is a nationally-recognized trainer on using the transformative power of Reproductive Justice to build a Human Rights movement that includes everyone. Ms. Ross is an expert on women’s issues, hate groups, racism and intolerance, human rights, and violence against women. Her work focuses on the intersectionality of social justice issues and how this affects social change and service delivery in all movements.
