Left of Black with Gaylon Alcaraz and Cynthia Greenlee

Left of Black - Season 3, Episode 18

Forty years ago the landmark decision of Roe v. Wade legally protected a woman"s right to have an abortion, yet for women of color—poor women of color in particular—Roe v. Wade has offered little protection in their desires to fully pursue reproductive justice.

For nearly thirty years, the Chicago Abortion Fund (CAF) has sought to "overturn economic barriers to reproductive choice," by engaging and mobilizing "low-income and poor women to become advocates for expanded reproductive access."

Gaylon Alcaraz, Executive Director of the Chicago Abortion Fund and Cynthia Greenlee of the Carolina Abortion Fund, join Left of Black host and Duke University Professor Mark Anthony Neal in a discussion of the legacy of Roe v. Wade and the continual political and structural impediments to Reproductive Justice for poor women and women of color.
