In this episode of Berkeley Talks , a panel of scholars — Berkeley Law professor Khiara Bridges; Carole Joffe, a professor of obstetrics and gynecology at UC San Francisco; and Jill Adams, executive director of If/When/How: Lawyering for Reproductive Justice — discuss how race, class and reproductive rights intersect and how people are choosing and resorting to self-directed and community-directed care to circumnavigate the structural inequalities in health care access.
