New York, NY – On September 14, 2022 leaders from the Center for Reproductive Rights, the Guttmacher Institute, and MSI Reproductive Choices gathered for a conversation on the global state of reproductive rights in the wake of the U.S. Supreme Court’s historic decision, moderated by Flora Peir, News Editor at The 19th. Hosted by the New York Society for Ethical Culture, this conversation is the first in their Global Citizens series, followed by a Q&A session.
Regression on abortion rights in the United States threatens access to critical sexual and reproductive health services for many of the most marginalized communities in the world – and it emboldens global opposition movements, which often draw funding and strategy from their U.S. counterparts.
Participating Panelists/Co-Organizers, Moderator, and Host:
- Rebecca Brown, Senior Director of Global Advocacy at the Center for Reproductive Rights
- Heather D. Boonstra, Vice President for Public Policy at the Guttmacher Institute
- Dr. Carole Sekimpi, Senior Country Director at MSI Reproductive Choices
- Flora Peir, Moderator, News Editor at The 19th
- Dr. Nori Rost, Host, Resident Acting Leader at the New York Society for Ethical Culture
This timely dialogue invites all global citizens committed to sexual and reproductive health and rights to consider the far-reaching ramifications of regressive U.S. policies – and to imagine how we can unite to advance these rights around the world as we share stories of resilience and hope from the front lines.
This event is co-organized by the Center for Reproductive Rights, the Guttmacher Institute, MSI United States, and the New York Society for Ethical Culture.
