A Michigan Meeting 
on the campus of the University of Michigan 
Pre-conference May 29; Conference May 30-31, 2013

This event is made possible by a Michigan Meetings grant from the Horace H. Rackham School of Graduate Studies at the University of Michigan, Ann Arbor with added funding from the University of Michigan Department of Obstetrics & Gynecology.

Conference Overview

Join us for an innovative meeting to advance reproductive justice by exploring the intersections of activism, advocacy, and academia. To date, advocacy groups have advanced
reproductive justice agendas around the country and the world. We believe it is time for academic institutions to step up to support their work by providing a forum for meaningful
dialogue and the development of research agendas and applied projects. This meeting will allow advocates, activists and academics to collectively explore how we can design
research informed by advocacy and generate useful and reliable data and findings that promote reproductive justice. 

Over the course of the conference we will:
1) exchange knowledge and recognize points of convergence and difference; 
2) create and energize new relationships; and
3) develop collaborative research agendas informed by advocacy.

This meeting will interest you if:
  • You are interested in broadening and strengthening the RJ dialogue among academics, activists, and advocates
  • You are an academic working on reproductive justice who wants to collaborate with other scholars and advocates
  • You are an advocate or activist working in the RJ movement who wants to partner with academics in specific research and practice areas
