To date, advocacy groups have advanced reproductive justice agendas around the country and the world.  This innovative meeting hopes to advance reproductive justice by exploring the intersections of activism, advocacy, and academia.  By providing a forum for meaningful dialogue and the development of research agendas and applied projects, advocates, activists and academics will collectively explore how we can design research informed by advocacy and generate useful and reliable data and findings that promote reproductive justice. 

A pre-conference workshop, Reproductive Justice at University of Michigan: Research, Advocacy, Community, held on May 29 will include an exhibit at the Hatcher Gallery in the Graduate Library providing a historical context for the emergence and antecedents of reproductive justice. The exhibit will feature indigenous artwork from the developing world that represents mothers lost to maternal mortality on loan from the White Ribbon Alliance.
