People in our community want to learn. We want to learn about our health, our environment, our society, and our families. Preterm’s Community Event Series offers monthly educational events that highlight the intersections of the issues our community cares about. These events are always free and open to the public. Coming up in November, a discussion about the history of immigration, welfare, and abortion policies in the United States.
At the Intersections: Abortion, Immigration, and Welfare Policy in the US
Monday, November 14 6:00 - 8:00 PM at Preterm
Did you know that abortion, immigration, and welfare policies can all be tied back to the climate of racial anxiety and mass immigration during the post-Civil War period? Join us for a closer look at the historical relationship between racism, classism, and misogyny in the US. Dr. Sri Thakkilapati, a lecturer with the Department of Sociology at the Ohio State University, will discuss the history of race and gender oppression in the United States and how those conditions affect our reproductive choices today.
This free event has been approved by the NASW Ohio Chapter for CEUs in Ohio! Social workers can earn 2 CEU hours for attending. This is part of Preterm's Monthly Community Engagement Series, so it’s free and open to the public. Parking is available in the Preterm parking lot.
