UCRJ Week 2024

The UCRJ team is busy organizing our second annual week of events to educate our community about the vision of the Reproductive Justice framework and inspire all to take action.

We want YOUR ideas! Individuals and organizations are invited to submit topic suggestions and event proposals. UCRJ is all about starting with big visions and seeing where it takes us, so even if your idea is not fully developed, we still want to hear from you.
