About The Event

The Center for Biological Diversity is partnering with Nurses for Sexual and Reproductive Health on a webinar about how toxic chemicals and climate change impede reproductive justice and solutions to advance reproductive and environmental health. The webinar will unveil a new report written by the Center called "The Influence of Environmental Toxicity, Inequity and Capitalism on Reproductive Health". The report describes the reproductive harm caused by fossil fuel extraction, plastic products, industrial agriculture, and climate change. The webinar will discuss these topics along with case studies and solutions. It will feature a discussion and Q&A with Center staff members Nate Donley, John Fleming and Victoria Bogdan Tejeda and Anna Brown with Nurses for Sexual and Reproductive Health. It will be moderated by Kelley Dennings and Allison Grossman, co-authors of the Center’s soon-to-be-released report on the topic. Join us on Thursday, Sept. 8 at 10 a.m. PT / 1 p.m. ET for an informative and engaging panel discussion. This free event will be recorded and the recording will include translations and closed captions. Register here - https://bit.ly/3A3Ev8o

About The Organization

Center for Biological Diversity

At the Center for Biological Diversity, we believe that the welfare of human beings is deeply linked to nature — to the existence in our world of a vast diversity of wild animals and plants. Because diversity has intrinsic value, and because its loss impoverishes society, we work to secure a future for all species, great and small, hovering on the brink of extinction. We do so through science, law and creative media, with a focus on protecting the lands, waters and climate that species need to survive.

We want those who come after us to inherit a world where the wild is still alive.
