Abortion has long been a controversial topic, so it might be no surprise women are still fighting for bodily autonomy and reproductive rights 44 years after the Supreme Court recognized a woman’s right to abortion. But while Roe v. Wade has faced a slew of challenges since 1973, this year feels like a significantly bleak time for reproductive rights. As fraught as the fight seems now, it’s more important than ever to show up and take action, according to Kierra Johnson, executive director of Unite for Reproductive and Gender Equity (URGE). For those just beginning to dip their toes into political activism, it can be difficult to know where to start. But Johnson has great advice for how to be an effective reproductive justice warrior.
