As school begins this fall we are standing in a new legal and political landscape. The recent Supreme Court ruling that overturned Roe v. Wade (1973) and the subsequent state laws triggered by that decision have raised unsettling questions around the topics of reproductive rights, precedence, privacy, bodily integrity, and how they relate to our code of laws and the U.S. Constitution. Dr. Kimberly Mutcherson, Co-Dean and Professor of Law at Rutgers Law School, NJ, will be our featured speaker for this timely and informative Engaging with Experts program. Dean Mutcherson is a specialist in reproductive justice, racial justice, family and health law, and has been an active voice in national media this summer. Join Dr. Mutcherson and an expert classroom teacher as we dive into the history and future of reproductive rights in the U.S., considering together the best ways to answer young people’s questions on this contentious topic.
