SisterSong, a national organization and reproductive justice collective, defines reproductive justice as the human right to maintain personal bodily autonomy, have children, not have children, and parent the children we have in safe and sustainable communities.  Housing insecurity threatens one’s ability to parent their children in a safe and healthy environment. Our panelists will describe the housing crisis within the context of reproductive justice and will offer strategies on how to mobilize local efforts to address this public health issue. This month’s Housing Hangout will be facilitated by Erica Payton Foh, PhD MPH, Assistant Professor of Public Health Education at UNC Greensboro and CHCS Research Fellow. Speakers:
  • Christina Yongue: Assistant Professor and the Director of Undergraduate Studies in the Department of Public Health Education at UNCG
  • Laura Vail: Director, Health Equity at Cone Health
  • Love Odetola: Doctoral Student, UNCG Department of Public Health Education
  • Natacha Nikokeza: UNCG Center for New North Carolinians Community Centers Senior Program Coordinator
  • Breanna Grant: Adolescent Parenting Program Coordinator YWCA Greensboro
