Twenty-one artists, five decades, four continents, and numerous traditions respond to abortion and reproductive justice through the lens of faith.

One year ago, in the Dobbs vs. Jackson Women’s Health decision, Supreme Court Justice Samuel Alito held that “the right to abortion is not deeply rooted in the nation’s history and traditions”.  Justice Alito overlooked the rich diversity of religious and cultural traditions that make up America. To respond, Deeply Rooted: Faith in Reproductive Justice will:

  • Bring Jewish feminist artists into dialogue with artists from other faith communities and backgrounds
  • Use art to provoke new conversations and deepen our understanding of each other
  • Share a robust roster of programs using art as a platform to gain new perspectives
