Childcare Is A Reproductive Justice Issue
COVID-19 has brought school closures and daycare closures – and quality childcare was too expensive already.
Reproductive justice is a human rights framework developed by Black women that holds the right to parent, the right not to parent, and the right to raise families in safe and healthy communities. Access to quality childcare and education is absolutely part of reproductive justice. Access to quality childcare and education has always been racialized, and a situation that was not good before the global pandemic has grown more untenable by the day.
These are trying times for parents. Let’s talk about it.
