In this episode we discuss abortions, the controversial decision of the Supreme Court to overturn Roe v. Wade, and the detrimental impact it will have on Black women. And we highlight SisterSong: Women of Color Reproductive Justice Collective, an organization working to improve the institutional policies and systems that impact the reproductive lives of marginalized communities.
