      The State of Reproductive Rights & Freedom

      On Tuesday October 24, the Greater Burlington Women's Forum will present: The State of Reproductive Rights & Freedom.

      RSVP on Eventbrite: http://bit.ly/2yGwaXZ

      As reproductive rights in other states are being chipped away, Vermont has bolstered efforts to protect them, from pursuing state legislative efforts to protecting access to no-cost birth control, to sending congressional delegates to Washington who would protect these rights nationally. The work continues to ensure that all men and women have access to affordable, legal, and safe reproductive healthcare services.

      Nationally, reproductive rights face renewed threats. This summer brought several attempts to repeal the Affordable Care Act, and with it challenges to services that are vital to men and women. What do efforts such as these mean for the country, and the state of Vermont? Our panelists will help us to better understand these challenges and what they mean moving forward.

      Panelists

      — Jill Krowinski, VT state legislator from Burlington and House Majority Leader
      — Meagan Gallagher, PPNNE President and CEO
      — Dr. Breena Holmes, Director of Maternal and Child Health for Vermont
