@ Busboys and Poets 5th & K: Reproductive Justice: A Panel Discussion with Dr. Willie Parker

Upcoming Event
Wednesday, June 21, 2017 - 6:30pm to 7:30pm

As access to legal abortion becomes more restricted and organizations providing the service face cuts in federal funding, the fate of Roe v. Wade is in peril. To understand what the Trump era means for reproductive rights, join us for a discussion of the issues with a panel of distinguished writers and public figures headed by Dr. Willie Parker, winner of the 2015 Planned Parenthood Margaret Sanger Award, and whose Pink House is the last remaining abortion clinic in Mississippi. Parker will be in conversation with Ilyse Hogue, President of NARAL Pro-Choice America and Reverend Dr. Christine Wiley and Reverend Dr. Dennis Wiley, co-pastors of the Covenant Baptist United Church of Christ. The discussion will be moderated by Dr. Jamila Taylor, a senior fellow at American Progress who specializes in domestic and international women’s health, reproductive rights, and reproductive justice.

*Please note that as space is limited for this event attendees will need a ticket to attend. The tickets will be free and available at Busboys and Poets 5th and K location at 5pm on the evening of the event.*
