Event Details

We are delighted to announce that this year’s speaker is Dr. Kari White, Executive and Scientific Director at Resound, a policy and research center located on the campus of the University of Texas at Austin.

Dr. White will discuss two recent studies that Resound has completed about pregnancy crisis centers (or, “false clinics”). These facilities are located throughout the state of Texas (and elsewhere in the US ) that encourage women to come in for a consultation, but have a specific agenda about reproductive choice. In Texas, pregnancy crisis centers receive state funding, do not provide healthcare, or offer options for pregnant women to consider.

Learn more about this misrepresentation, and what we can do to combat it followed by a Q & A session.

Repro Shabbat takes place annually when we read Parshat Mishpatim — the portion of the Torah that is used as the basis for Reform Judaism’s teachings about reproductive health.

Get ready to hear a stimulating presentation!

Box lunches will be available for purchase.
