If/When/How: Lawyering for Reproductive Justice
The Maurer School of Law chapter of If/When/How: Lawyering for Reproductive Justice is part of a national organization that transforms the law and policy landscape through advocacy, support, and organizing so all people have the power to determine if, when, and how to define, create, and sustain families with dignity and to actualize sexual and reproductive well-being on their own terms.
We envision a transformation of the legal systems and institutions that perpetuate oppression into structures that realize justice and a future when all people can self-determine their reproductive lives free from discrimination, coercion, or violence.
What is Reproductive Justice (RJ)?
For If/When/How, reproductive justice (RJ) represents a framework of understanding, an analytical tool, a movement-building strategy, and a desired outcome. RJ recognizes the ways race, class, sex, age, sexual orientation, gender expression, immigration status, ability, and more affect our ability to shape our reproductive destinies. By applying an intersectional analysis, RJ advocates recognize how each individual is uniquely affected by barriers to information, resources, health care, and social supports at different stages throughout their reproductive lives. By training, engaging, and mobilizing our network, we seek to secure the enabling conditions necessary for all people to thrive in their reproductive lives and beyond.
