Take part in this important anniversary by blogging about why the law is important for women and their families, how it’s helping you, or why keeping the law strong is important for everyone. It’s simple to get involved: register your blog to participate in the blog-a-thon and send us a link to your blog post the week of the Affordable Care Act anniversary.

Here at the National Women’s Law Center we are trying to identify instances where this practice may have occurred.

Are women in America healthier than they were 10 years ago? Which state and federal policies can help improve women’s health?

The legal field, even within public interest law, and even within a subset of public interest law like reproductive rights, can be overwhelming. For non-lawyers, it can be hard to figure out where the law fits into your overall vision and strategy. But for lawyers, especially us young lawyers, it’s no less confusing; it’s hard to figure out where you as an individual fit into the social movements around you. To help current law students in this process, the National Women’s Law Center and Law Students for Reproductive Justice are teaming up for our annual training for law students on June 11th.
