Faith and Culture Conversations – Reproductive Rights with Jamie Manson
Join facilitators Dr. Christine Luckritz Marquis and Dr. David Coogan on Wednesday, May 11th at 7:00 pm on Zoom for an engaging conversation with Jamie Manson about reproductive rights.
OUR CONVERSATION PARTNER: Jamie Manson, President of Catholics for Choice
Jamie Manson is President of Catholics for Choice. For over fifteen years she has been a thought leader and advocate in the field of women’s equality and reproductive rights in the Catholic Church and the public square. For 12 years, she was a columnist at the National Catholic Reporter where she was one of the few openly LGBTQ journalists in the Catholic media in the world. She was an often-solitary voice for reproductive freedom and justice and was one of the first to sound the alarm about the right-wing push for religious freedom.
Jamie’s expertise in Catholicism and sexual ethics was first formed during her studies at Yale with her mentor, Margaret Farley. She edited and wrote the introduction to Changing the Questions: Explorations in Christian Ethics, a collection of writings by Margaret Farley (Orbis Books, 2015). Jamie has published op-eds in the New York Times, NBC Think, Ms. Magazine, and Rewire and has been featured in dozens of media outlets, including Full Frontal with Samantha Bee, NPR, the LA Times, and CNN. She is the recipient of the Sr. Theresa Kane Woman of Vision and Courage Award.
