About the Event
Laura Sullivan of JustChoice (www.justchoice.org) will provide a program overview and insights for an innovative community model rooted in transformative and reproductive justice. We will discuss how JustChoice is shifting pregnancy and parenting support to look more like seeing and receiving folks rather than shaming and saving. We are a true all options pregnancy resource center and adoption agency working tirelessly and unapologetically to live in a world where there is little to no need for adoption.
Laura Sullivan, LISW has a background in trauma therapy, child welfare, and as a host/foster family. Laura currently serves as the Chief Program Officer at JustChoice, overseeing family preservation, all options counseling, and adoption. Laura is passionate about Reproductive Justice, relational programming, and disrupting systems that cause harm to those they were created to serve. As an adoption professional, Laura believes that an ethical pregnant person-centered adoption plan cannot be created unless all pregnancy options are presented. This work is deeply personal for Laura; her mother was a teen mother who became pregnant as a result of rape and didn’t have access to support or options. Laura is grateful for the opportunity to change the landscape for unplanned pregnancy and continually works to ensure that all pregnant people have a voice and access to their reproductive choices.
