Conversations with An Expert is a SiX video series where SiX staff or state legislators in the Reproductive Freedom Leadership Council talk with experts in the reproductive health, rights, and justice movement.
In this conversation, SiX Senior Reproductive Rights Associate Laura Hernandez sits down with Colorado Senator Julie Gonzales and Pro-Choice Arizona & Abortion Fund of Arizona Executive Director Eloisa Lopez. Senator Gonzales and Eloisa discuss the intersection of immigrant and reproductive justice in Colorado and Arizona, how federal and state movements are connected, and what white legislators can do to support their colleagues of color who are leading on immigrant justice.
Senator Gonzales lifts up the work of Colorado Immigrant Rights Coalition, Colorado People’s Alliance , COLOR: Colorado Organization for Latina Opportunity and Reproductive Rights, and Servicios de la Raza (Services for the People). Eloisa shouts out Tuscon Abortion Support Collective (TASC), Trans Queer Pueblo, Poder In Action, and reproductive and immigrant justice leader Alejandra Pablos.
