The Center for Biological Diversity partnered 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 unveiled 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 discussed these topics along with case studies and solutions.
Panel discussion participants included:
- Anna Brown, Director of Education, Nurses for Sexual and Reproductive Health
- John Fleming, Senior Scientist, Center for Biological Diversity
- Nate Donley, Environmental Health Science Director, Center for Biological Diversity
- Victoria Bogdan Tejeda, Staff Attorney, Center for Biological Diversity
The report authors, Kelley Dennings and Allison Grossman, briefly discuss the report’s conclusions and moderate the panel.
