The host of panelists will dive deep into Project 2025’s efforts to dismantle Roe vs. Wade and decades of women’s reproductive rights progress.

reproductive rights“It’s imperative that we illuminate their meticulously developed blueprint for restricting access to abortion and reproductive healthcare and confront the regressive policies that advocate for outdated and ineffective methods. These actions are not only an infringement on our rights but a direct threat to public health, and our entire democracy. It’s vital to educate, debate, and shape our future together in order for democracy to survive,” says Abeni Bloodwoth, chief executive officer and founder, chromatic black™.

Project 2025 and Its Implications

Distinguished thought leaders will dissect the far-reaching impact of the MAGA Plan’s Project 2025, as it is conceptualized and the conservative blueprint designed to realign America’s policies and governance structure away from what its proponents see as regulatory overreach, towards a more deregulated, market-driven society.

Project 2025 lays out specifics for hundreds of policy objectives affecting every area of public life. Many of them affect three primary areas:

  • First, the dismantling of environmental regulations, clean energy measures, and clean climate policies;

  • Second, a rollback of civil and political rights for women and LGBTQ populations and the elimination of public health measures; and

  • Third, a massive purge of career civil servants and increase in the concentration of power in the Executive Branch of the White House to consolidate an entrenched authoritarian regime.

Upcoming “2024 & Beyond” Creating Our Shared Future” town halls will focus on LGBTQ rights (May 30), public education (June 27), immigration (September 26), and racial equity (October 24). Dates subject to change.
