Part 1: The Fight for Reproductive Justice
Life-saving reproductive health care is under attack. In this class, we will discuss how the current assault on women’s and gender oppressed people’s reproductive freedom and bodily autonomy fits within the wider history of reproductive health and health care in the U.S. The course will review the overwhelming evidence that reproductive health care is life-saving care, and it will examine the health disparities that highlight the need for nurses to advocate for health justice, gender justice, and racial justice simultaneously. Finally, we will discuss why resisting current attacks on reproductive health care is essential to advancing wider efforts to protect democracy and to advance health and economic justice.
- Identify historical and contemporary instances of reproductive oppression in the U.S. and the threat it poses to patients’ health.
- Identify evidence that reproductive care is safe and essential health care.
- Articulate how reproductive justice connects with other forms of patient advocacy and movements for social and economic justice.
- Explain how nurses can advocate for reproductive justice.
Instructor: Anna Carella
Part 2: Global Solidarity, Global Health
This course will analyze the global relationship between public health, nursing, and international solidarity among health care workers, their patients, and their communities. We will investigate how global issues such as the growing refugee crisis, environmental racism, climate change, and nurse migration all impact public health. This course will also show the international factors that shape the health, safety, and well-being of working people. We will conclude by exploring how principles of global solidarity can empower nurses to continue to advocate for patients and grow their collective power.
- Identify the causes and consequences of key current international health crises as well as their impact on patients and nurses.
- Explain how health disparities that patients experience in the United States are interlinked with global health inequalities.
- Explore how nurses can use their collective strength to respond to these global challenges and fight for health justice across the world.
