2015-2016 Cari Sietstra Organizing Award Winners

The University of Chicago Law School chapter of If/When/How: Lawyering for Reproductive Justice (LRJ) (formerly "Law Students for Reproductive Justice") works to normalize reproductive justice within the law school, grow the reproductive justice movement, and realize reproductive justice in our community. LRJ approaches these goals with by focusing on three key areas: visibility, education, and service.

  • We believe visibility is key to normalizing reproductive justice. We maintain a consistently high profile within the school, through publicity, tabling, and special events, as well as maintenance of our social media presence, which allows us to both curate and deliver reproductive justice news and content, as well as promote our organization's activities.
  • We believe education is key to growing the reproductive justice movement. We host a regular slate of high-profile speakers on all facets of reproductive justice, and go well beyond the standard lunch talk to incorporate unique events such as film series and trivia nights. These events allow us to capture the attention of both our classmates and our community.
  •  We believe service is key to realizing reproductive justice. We coordinate pro bono opportunities for our members, on a wide rage of legal work and with a wide range of partner organizations. We also hold regular fundraisers, for the benefit legal organizations that work for reproductive justice.
