Description:

The Monday, June 4 Akron Branch monthly meeting at 7 pm, at the Stow-Munroe Falls Library will feature a presentation by Catrina Otonoga, outreach and advocacy coordinator for abortion provider Preterm, about abortion rights and services in Ohio.  Preterm is Ohio’s largest abortion clinic, and one of the largest clinics in the country.  Previously, she was a board member at Preterm and consulted on both local and state candidate and issue campaigns throughout Ohio.

Catrina is a 2013 graduate of Case Western Reserve University School of Law, where she was co-president of Law Students for Social Justice, and Community Outreach Manager for International Law Society.  She has interned at If/When/How (previously Law Students for Reproductive Justice), the Cleveland Council on World Affairs, the Kirwan Institute for Race and Ethnicity, and the Institute for War and Peace Reporting.  In the Spring of 2013, the Journal of Race, Gender & Poverty at Southern University Law Center published her article, “Giving Birth to Change:  How the Reproductive Justice Movement Unshackled Pregnant Inmates across the Nation”.

As always there will be time for questions and answers at the end of the program.  Also as usual, anyone wishing to continue the conversation after the meeting is welcome to join us up the street at the Stow Beef O’Brady’s over drinks or a late dinner.  We hope to see you there!
