Where did Trump come from? Reproductive politics, whiteness, and neoliberalism

Tue, Oct 17 2017 - 7:00pm to 8:30pm
Location: 
Graham Hall

For many inside and outside the United States, the election of Donald J. Trump seemed to come out of nowhere -- what happened to the nice folks that elected Barack Obama? This talk argues the opposite: Trump is not exceptional, but the normal face of the Republican Party over the past 40 years (albeit slightly more blunt). It explores the ways that both white supremacy and neoliberalism have been enacted through attacks on reproduction and family forms, particularly of women of color.

Reproductive Justice Panel Discussion

Tue, Apr 18 2017 - 6:00pm to 8:00pm
Location: 
Campus Center Room 174-176

Organizers from UMass Students for Reproductive Justice and the Pioneer Valley Women's March will be hosting a panel discussing the intersection of reproductive justice activism and politics on a state and local level. While many believe Massachusetts' progressive tendencies will be enough to protect our residents as the federal government continues to strip away rights and protections, the truth is that both activists and politicians are going to have to work closely together in the State in order to truly guarantee equitable access to reproductive health care for all.

Our wonderful panelists include:
- Cory Ellen Gatrall, a sexual and reproductive health RN and
organizer of the forth-coming Western MA Abortion Doula project
- Rep. Ellen Story, the former Representative for the Hampshire 3rd District
- Laura Briggs, Professor and Chair of the Women, Gender, and Sexuality Studies Department at UMass Amherst
- Marisa Pizii, Co-Director of the Prison Birth Project
- Mason Dunn, President of the Massachusetts Transgender Political Coalition
