I’m kicking off the podcast interview series at the beginning… what a better way to start a podcast on parenting and politics than to start at the beginning, let’s talk about ReproRights and Reproductive Justice with Jessica Gonzalez-Rojas, Executive Director of the National Latina Institute for Reproductive Health (NLIRH).

We discuss:

  • Access to birth control in the USA
  • Roe v. Wade: is it in jeopardy?
  • NLIRH’s work
  • And MORE!
