Maureen Kelly from Planned Parenthood to speak on Human Rights & Sexual Rights

10/02/2012

Contributed by Kimberly Baker

 Maureen Kelly, Vice President for Education and Training at Planned Parenthood of the Southern Finger Lakes, will present “Human Rights & Sexual Rights: An Interactive Workshop on the Connections, Intersections, and Importance of Broadening Our Scope.”  This event takes place on Monday, October 8 at 7 PM in Textor 101Pizza will be provided to attendees!

This event is part of the Women’s Studies event series entitled, “From Reproductive Rights to Reproductive Justice: Reclaiming the Conversation on Sexual and Reproductive Issues.” As we head into the election session, politicians have focused almost exclusively on deeply politicized issues like abortion and birth control.  While these issues are important, the Women’s Studies program is interested in expanding the conversation to include the wide range of issues surrounding sexuality and reproduction, including sexual self-determination, decisions about if and when to have children or not to have them, and the resources to raise children.  In our series of events, we have chosen to shine the spotlight on people often left out of the reproductive rights discourse, particularly queer people, people with disabilities, and immigrant families.  This workshop with Maureen Kelly is the first in a series of events to be held this semester.

This event is free and open to the public.  Individuals with disabilities requiring accommodations should contact Kim Baker at kmbaker@ithaca.edu or 607-274-5122. We ask that requests for accommodations be made as soon as possible.
