HOW COMICS & POP CULTURE ARE SHAPING THE FUTURE OF REPRODUCTIVE JUSTICE
Comics and science fiction have been used to engage American audiences to help shift cultural norms and promote social justice. Star Trek, for instance, featured a multicultural cast and played a pivotal role in the Civil Rights movement. As we enter a new age, how can we use comics, science fiction, and fantasy to help reimagine a future for reproductive justice?  This very special Let’s Talk About Sex Pre- Conference Institute will spend a full day exploring Science, Science Fiction, Comics, and Fantasy with a reproductive justice theme.  Bookmark this website, as will be updating it with information about panelist, workshops and special guest.
