My Broken Language, Quiara Alegría Hudes' memoir, speaks to the necessity for reproductive justice in Black and Brown communities, as well as the longtime community-led work toward collective health justice in our city. Join Philadelphia community activists for a discussion about often untold histories of reproductive oppression, from forced sterilization to the criminalization of pregnant bodies; current issues that Latine transgender, non-binary, and cisgender individuals are confronting; and policy work and grassroots activism in the struggle for anti-racist reproductive justice.

The panel discussion will be structured as a community roundtable, inviting attendees to share experiences, resources, and stories, and will take place in person at Ramonita G. de Rodriguez Library as well as online. The event will take place in English and Spanglish, with live Spanish translation.
