State of Abortion: State Policy & Advocacy Briefing
August 4 at 2pm | Register Here for the Zoom
 In the wake of Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization, access to abortion is now a patchwork collection of laws and ongoing legal challenges. Join NCJW on August 4 at 2pm for a state policy and advocacy-focused call to learn and discuss how we can meet this moment. Bella Pori and Victoria Gillison from the Center for Reproductive Rights will brief us on the current legal landscape and leaders of the Liberate Abortion Campaign’s State Policy Table will share some specific ways to take action.
