About this Event
Jade Sasser, Associate Professor, Department of Gender & Sexuality Studies, UC Riverside, will give a Bellarmine Forum lecture titled "Navigating Reproductive Justice in the Climate Crisis."
Some climate scientists describe climate problems as problems of unrestrained population growth. Such discourses align closely with historical narratives blaming the fertility and reproduction of the poor, particularly women of color, for a range of social, political, economic, and environmental problems. In an era of ongoing climate crisis, can movements for reproductive justice and climate justice align? This talk explores the challenging ways population has been blamed for environmental and climate crises and how reproductive justice activists and scholars have resisted. From there, it investigates the possible ways social justice-oriented approaches can help us navigate out of the reductive perspectives of population control.
