Reproductive Justice Statewide Working Group
The Supreme Court’s decision to overturn Roe v. Wade on June 24, 2022 reverses 50 years of constitutional rights and protections afforded to people seeking abortions and control over their reproductive freedom. Thankfully, North Carolina is not one of the 13 states that has a "trigger law" where abortion ban is now automatically going into effect. It is still legal to get an abortion in North Carolina. Healthcare professionals are preparing for a massive influx of people coming to NC to seek an abortion from neighboring states - as we will now be one of the only places in the south with legal abortion clinics. Our faith calls us to have their backs. Abortion rights are fundamental to Jewish values.
Register below for the Zoom link for our next meeting during which we will:
- Vote to adopt the Black Reproductive Justice Pledge
- Review upcoming events from our partners at Pro-Choice NC, Planned Parenthood Votes! South Atlantic, and National Council of Jewish Women
- Hear report backs on the Communications team projects
Join with Jewish folks from across the state to brainstorm ways that we can organize to make a difference. This is a chance to guide CJJ’s work in fighting for reproductive justice and a way for you to contribute and take action in this challenging time.
