Reproductive Justice is for Everyone! is an art exhibition organized and hosted by nonprofit organization JAM Humanities. The exhibition explores some of the myriad manifestations, experiences, emotions, and meanings of reproductive justice from present day struggles and organizing to the aspirational and everything in between.
The thirty works of visual and literary art included in this exhibition touch on topics ranging from police violence, religion, contraception, abortion rights and access, historical abortion and fertility control, stigmas and stereotypes, bodily autonomy, healthcare disparities and obstacles, joy, sexual assault, motherhood, being intentionally childfree, being denied the right to have children, and more.
The artwork was selected by a jury comprised of artists and reproductive justice workers from nearly seventy submissions; jurors included: Jillian Marie Browning, nicole gugliotti, Dr. Sujatha Prabhakaran, Dani Sigler, and Chloe Wing. To learn more about the exhibition, visit the About page.
Reproductive justice is a concept and movement created and led by Black women. As defined by SisterSong Women of Color Reproductive Justice Collective, reproductive justice is “the human right to maintain personal bodily autonomy, have children, not have children, and parent the children we have in safe and sustainable communities.” To learn more about reproductive justice, visit the Resources page.
All visual and literary artwork can be accessed through the rjife! gallery; the literary selections can also be read through the rjife! e-zine, which is co-sponsored by Kitchen Table Literary Arts.
