Reproductive Rights on the 50th Anniversary of Roe

January 26, 2023 @ 12:00 pm - 2:30 pm

January would’ve marked the 50th anniversary of Roe v. Wade, the landmark Supreme Court decision that made abortion a constitutionally protected right. That decision stood for 49 years — impacting generations of women and giving millions of people greater autonomy over their reproductive rights — until the high court overturned it in June. The 19th will mark January’s consequential milestone with high-level conversations on the legal, historical and cultural impact of Roe, and what the future holds without it.
