Strategies for Incorporating the Reproductive Justice Framework into Your Messaging
When advocating for increased funding, family planning providers often make statements about how investments in Title X and other public funding lead to taxpayer savings. Although this focus on cost savings may be required, for example to demonstrate budget neutrality, such arguments often contribute to inherently racist and classist narratives. During this session, speakers will discuss how family planning providers can both elevate the importance of public funding streams that finance contraception while, at the same time, avoid messages that devalue the pregnancy and childbearing of marginalized groups and undermine reproductive autonomy. Special attention will be placed on how family planning providers and advocates can incorporate a reproductive justice framework into their advocacy and communications work without co-opting the movement and its language.

Addressing Common Questions for Clinicians in Initiating & Sustaining Telehealth Sexual & Reproductive Health Services
