Join us in person or via Zoom for an event focused on reproductive justice in Chicago featuring Natalie Moore, WBEZ journalist and author of the recently published play, The Billboard: A Play About Abortion. Set in Chicago's Englewood neighborhood, The Billboard portrays Black women fighting for reproductive rights and autonomy as the local government seeks to shut them down. Natalie will be in conversation with Alicia Hurtado, Communications and Advocacy Manager at Chicago Abortion Fund.

In-person attendees will be required to wear a mask.

Accessibility info: The event space is wheelchair accessible with gendered, accessible bathrooms. The space is not fragrance-free. CART live captioning will be provided at the in-person event. Auto-captions will be enabled in Zoom (we are checking to see if we can provide CART live captioning for the Zoom, too). Please contact if you have any other access requests.

Hosts: UIC Institute for Research on Race and Public Policy, Women's Leadership and Resource Center, and Gender and Women's Studies.

About the series: IRRPP's Embodied Inequality: Unpacking the Impact of Race & Racism on Health series builds on important work documenting extensive health disparities. This interdisciplinary lecture series explores why race is so consequential for health outcomes and how scholars, practitioners, and community groups can intervene to improve health outcomes for vulnerable communities.
