Panel on Dobbs v. Jackson Women's Health

On campus, room TBD, Tucson, ARIZONA

Please join the American Constitution Society, Arizona Health Law Society, and the Family and Juvenile Law Student Association for a panel discussion on reproductive rights. Professor Eunice Lee will discuss the strange procedural aspects of Texas law SB 8. Sarah Malanga and Jessica Graves will discuss the substantive constitutional issues raised in Dobbs v. Jackson Women's Health. 

Jessica Graves received her JD from the University of Arizona. In 2018 Jessica opened her own adoption practice where she has assisted and supported Arizona families in their parenthood journeys. Jessica has completed over 1000 adoptions since she began practicing in 2015. She also helps birth parents through the adoption process and represents children and parents in dependency cases. Jessica is heavily involved in the community and sits on the boards of many local charities.

Sarah Malanga received her JD from the University of Arizona where she also completed a Masters in Public Health with an emphasis in Maternal and Child Health. Sarah is the founder of Bit by Little Bit, LLC, and works as a postpartum doula and parent educator in Boston, MA. Prior to founding her company Sarah was a regulatory science fellow at the University of Arizona where she researched and wrote about the overlap between health and relevant regulatory frameworks.

Both Sarah and Jessica’s work is heavily involved with the various aspects of Reproductive Justice including health equity and literacy, a broad and more inclusive understanding of who and what a parent is, and family and child safety and support. Their passion for the field continues to grow as they work towards more equitable access and an individual’s ability to choose if, when, and how they become parents.
