ABOUT THE SHOW

 

Welcome to  Nurses for Justice! This podcast is brought to you by Nurses for Justice and was created to dive into the heart of the reproductive health and justice movement. Each month, Rosie Laine and Rimsha Syed sit down with nurses, students, advocates, educators, and other allied professionals who are dedicated to making bodily autonomy a reality for more people. Between analyzing the way reproductive justice intersects with many other causes to riveting interviews with abortion care providers navigating a post-Roe political landscape, Nurses for Justice is your backstage pass to stories that inspire you.
