Join the Institute for Research on Race and Public Policy and co-sponsors in person or virtually for an event focusing on reproductive justice in Chicago featuring Natalie Moore, WBEZ journalist and author of the recently published play, “The Billboard: A Play About Abortion.” Set in Chicago’s Englewood neighborhood, “The Billboard” portrays Black women fighting for reproductive rights and autonomy as the local government seeks to shut them down.

This event is part of our Embodied Inequality: Unpacking the Impact of Race & Racism on Health series which builds on important work documenting extensive health disparities. This interdisciplinary lecture series explores why race is so consequential for health outcomes and how scholars, practitioners and community groups can intervene to improve health outcomes for vulnerable communities.
