Bronfein Family Law Clinic student-attorneys testified in Annapolis last month on bills addressing reproductive health care for incarcerated women. Shown from left are Alexis Sisolak, Professor Shanta Trivedi, Professor Margaret Johnson, Katie Haladay and Jada Benn. Sen. Susan Lee (at center in dark blue suit) and other members of the Reproductive Justice Inside Coalition are also pictured.

Student-attorneys from the Bronfein Family Law Clinic last month submitted written testimony and gave oral testimony in front of the Maryland Senate and House on two bills — SB 598 and HB 797 – that would require Maryland correctional facilities to provide free menstrual hygiene products to female inmates.

Students also submitted written testimony and testified before the Maryland House on HB 787, which would require all Maryland correctional facilities to have written policies on reproductive health care for pregnant inmates.

The student-attorneys acted as part of the Reproductive Justice Inside Coalition.
