Reference Services in a Post-Roe World

  • 11:00 AM - 12:30 PM
  • Zoom


Registration is closed

Please join LILRC to learn about local and national reproductive health resources for patrons. The program will review the need for these resources and will include an interactive discussion on the foreseeable impact of the recently leaked Supreme Court decision on Roe. There will also be conversation on what our roles, as librarians, can be in providing confidential support and resources.

You will learn:

  • The history of the fight for reproductive and abortion rights
  • What the reversal of Roe v. Wade could mean for reproductive health decisions and privacy
  • The potential increased impact on low income, minority, and non-English speaking communities that already experience barriers to healthcare
  • The impact on the transgender community
  • How to be supportive and compassionate while working with patrons

Presented by: Heather Simonson, Sea Change Holistic Wellness Center
