Legal Memo to the Health and Human Services Office for Civil Rights

2-3pm Eastern on Thursday, October 20

Register at birthrightsbar.org

BRBA and Elephant Circle will discuss the legal memo, "Mobilizing the Office for Civil Rights’ Authority to Address Obstetric Violence and Obstetric Racism." The memo advocates for the federal Department of Health and Human Services' Office for Civil Rights to use its authority under § 42 USC 18116 and its implementing regulation, § 1557, to enforce the nation's civil rights laws in the context of health care. It frames obstetric racism and obstetric violence as forms of discrimination on the basis of race/color/national origin, sex, age, and disability. This event will feature several authors of the memo.
