“Engaging with Law and Politics in a post-Roe World”

October 19, 2022 @ 11:00 am - 12:00 pm


The USC Institute on Inequalities in Global Health, in partnership with USC Law & Global Health Collaboration and USC Keck School of Medicine Center for Gender Equity in Medicine and Science, invites you to join us for “Engaging with Law and Politics in a post-Roe World” on Wednesday, Oct. 19, 11 a.m.–noon PDT.

This one-hour virtual discussion brings together practitioners, activists and scholars engaged in addressing the current legal and political landscape around abortion in the United States and beyond. Expert panelists will provide insight into state differences in legal restrictions, political action seeking to secure access in this complex legal environment, and the implications of the US Supreme Court’s recent decision in Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization for securing access in other parts of the world. Given the upcoming US midterm elections, and trends in other countries seeking to advance reproductive justice, this timely discussion will provide much needed information on the legal landscape and consider both challenges and opportunities in the months to come.

This event will be followed by a special 30-minute Zoom session from noon–12:30 p.m. PDT that will give USC students a space to discuss opportunities for activism in the months ahead. Come ready to learn, listen and reflect in a conversation facilitated by students from the Graduate Student Government, USC Inter-Health Council, USC Student Assembly for Gender Empowerment, and Latino Students in Medicine.
