What is an MRNA vaccine? How does it work? How will it affect my body? What is herd immunity? Will it affect my reproductive system and overall reproductive system health?

Join Sister Diaspora for Liberation for an educational webinar with two trusted community doctors as they help us understand the vaccine so we can all ensure that we are making an accurately informed decision for our bodies and health.

We will be joined by Dr. LeAnne Roberts and Dr. Jeremy Johnson, who will provide an overview of the vaccine and we will then open up to questions from participants.

ABOUT: Sister Diaspora for Liberation

https://www.facebook.com/SisterDiaspora/

We are Sister Diaspora for Liberation, a grassroots diasporic intersectional feminist collective rooted in a love ethic and healing by and for womxn of color from the African, Asian, and Indigenous diasporas.

The Sister Diaspora for Liberation (SDL) aligns itself with a political practice to end all forms of oppression and injustice through a womyn of color and transnational feminist lens, which is intersectional and based on core principles of love and reverence for all humanity and the natural world.

SDL believes that movements for change must be built from the ground up with love through leadership and representation by those most impacted and traditionally excluded. We strive to create a transnational feminist collective in both the political and personal aspects of our connected struggles across identities and borders.
