Fighting for health and justice in the wake of Supreme Court setbacks

September 16th @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm

A Dr. Lawrence H. and Roberta Cohn Forum

Recent and anticipated Supreme Court rulings on abortion access, gun control, voting rights, environmental protection, and affirmative action are reshaping U.S. politics and policies. With midterms approaching, we’ve assembled leading voices in these fields to talk through the court’s impact on public health and social justice. Our panelists will also explore the power of civic action — and lay out practical steps to stand up for health and justice in the face of painful setbacks. 

Register for free to join the discussion. 

An on-demand video will be posted after the event.
