If/When/How: Lawyering for Reproductive Justice
Please join the Berkeley Law chapter of If/When/How: Lawyering for Reproductive Justice for a lunch event with Julie Burkhart. Ms. Burkhart has opened abortion clinics in Kansas and Oklahoma, two of the states most hostile to reproductive health care access. She worked closely with Dr. George Tiller, an abortion provider in Kansas who was murdered for his work in 2009. Ms. Burkhart will share her story and describe the legal, political, and regulatory hurdles to opening reproductive health centers in these states.
Co-sponsored by the Center on Reproductive Rights and Justice at Berkeley Law, Boalt Hall Women's Association, the Henderson Center for Social Justice, the Berkeley Journal of Criminal Law, the Boalt Hall Committee for Human Rights, the National Lawyers Guild, and more TBA! Lunch will be provided.
