Governor Kim Reynolds and legislative Republicans passed the 6-week ban on abortion during a special session in July 2023. The Iowa Supreme Court holds the fate and reproductive rights of Iowans in their hands with the ruling on the case. Mazie Stilwell will share with us the state of the state regarding reproductive rights in Iowa and our nation — and how each of us can be involved to ensure every Iowan has the right to make their own reproductive health care decisions and has access to safe and legal abortion.

There are three ways to attend Crossroads. Registration is required for all three:

Before assuming this role, she earned her Master of Arts in Communication: Public Affairs and Advocacy from Drake University.Over the past decade, Mazie has held a variety of advocacy and communications roles throughout Iowa’s progressive community, including work on health care, labor, education, and disability advocacy. She also cut her teeth organizing for Planned Parenthood from 2014-2015, so her current role is a full-circle homecoming.
