Speakers will address important questions such as, how is the climate crisis affecting the capability of a woman to choose whether she wants or can have children? How does her decision help counter the destruction of our Earth, ourselves and our kin? How can the reproductive rights of the people most vulnerable to climate effects be guaranteed?
