 Speakers will include:

  • Representatives from the Latina Institute will share their work in the Rio Grande valley documenting women’s stories related to these restrictions
  • Sara Hutchinson from Catholics for Choice
  • The voices of Texas women telling their experiences of family planning and abortion care restrictions
