Funders Network on Population, Reproductive Health and Rights and Funders for LGBTQ Issues
Join Funders for LGBTQ Issues and Funders Network on Population, Reproductive Health and Rights for the first in a series of funder phone briefings on the aftermath of the Hobby Lobby decision, which undercuts a key purpose of the Affordable Care Act: ensuring contraceptive access to all. Leading law and policy advocates Janet Chung from Legal Voice in Seattle and Jill Gaulding from Gender Justice in Minneapolis will brief foundations on the impact of Hobby Lobby and share strategies advocates are exploring to protect and advance reproductive rights, LGBTQ equality and gender justice in the aftermath of the infamous Hobby Lobby decision. This conversation is especially important for LGBTQ funders to join: As Tim Sweeney notes:
This funder briefing will be the first in a two-part series on the aftermath of the Hobby Lobby decision. The second (date and time to be announced) will address responses by progressive religious organizations and individuals to the notion set forth by the decision, that religious convictions allow individuals and corporations to excuse themselves from otherwise binding obligations. Please RSVP to firstname.lastname@example.org to participate. Time: 2pm ET/ 1pm CT/ 11am PT for one hour This briefing is co-sponsored by Funders for LGBTQ Issues and Funders Network on Population, Reproductive Health and Rights.
