ABSTRACT

“Reproductive Justice” is a course that promises to explore historical and contemporary reproductive politics through a social justice lens that is attentive to the intersections of patriarchy, racism, poverty, and colonialism. Through the course, students learn how ethics, economic, social, and political power shape our intimate and procreative lives. To fulfill the promise of the radical movement from which the course takes its name, I created a civic engagement assignment called the Reproductive Justice Walking Tour, modeled after the Words for Choice Walking tour in New York City. This article briefly describes the roots of the assignment before outlining how it came together. I argue the Reproductive Justice Walking Tour is an act of diva citizenship because it brings private conversations into public space.
