In brief: I had the pleasure of being on the new Talk Poverty show on We Act Radio to discuss the need for economic justice to underly all our movements, including reproductive justice.

Overview:

I was really excited to get this request. TalkPoverty.org is a new project of the Center For American Progress and so many of their projects are doing outstanding work. From their “About Us” page:

TalkPoverty.org—a project of the Center for American Progress—is dedicated to demonstrating that we know how to dramatically reduce poverty. Here you will find basic data about poverty in America; hear from people living in poverty and people dedicated to the fight against poverty; and get involved with local, state and national organizations to take action.
TalkPoverty.org is a bridge between local and national voices, grassroots activism and policy work, and those who are struggling and those who are more economically secure. At TalkPoverty.org, discover a vibrant antipoverty community and your place in it.

We discussed my upcoming (and now published) piece for RH Reality Check on the way I’ve recentered my abortion story following a realization that I’ve lived my entire adult life at or near the poverty line. Obviously, that isn’t news to me; I was there when I as grocery shopping at the Dollar Store and spending 80+ hours a week working since I was 22, but I had always told my abortion story with the intention of calling out our health “care” system which allowed my insurance provider to refuse coverage of my birth control.

In brief: My regular spot with Justice!

Overview:

Today we celebrate with an eye to the future. I talk about what the eventual outcomes of the Supreme Court taking up the HB2 case could be for Texas as well as the face of abortion access across the country.

Justice reads some tea leaves in other Supreme Court decisions — including the quote that is the graphic for this post/podcast. We connect the other decisions like the one upholding the Arizona unbiased redistricting to the HB2 stay and possible full definition of “undue burden.”
