The leaked draft opinion in Dobbs v. Jackson Women's Health Organization, if officially released by the Supreme Court, would wipe out the federal constitutional right to abortion and directly impact the lives of millions of people. Already, the conservative legal movement is mobilizing to take advantage of the groundwork being laid in Dobbs to put same-sex marriage, contraception, and even interracial marriage in jeopardy. How wide will the impact of the Dobbs decision be and who will be affected? This week, Lindsay Langholz speaks with Kimberly Mutcherson, Professor and Co-Dean of Rutgers Law School, about the potential domino effect of Dobbs. ----------------- Join the Progressive Legal Movement Today: ACSLaw.org Today's Host: Lindsay Langholz, ACS Director of Policy and Programs Guest: Kimberly Mutcherson, Co-Dean and Professor of Law, Rutgers Law School Guest: "Pregnancy and Childbirth Endanger Women's Lives and Health: 'Pregnancy Is Not a Benign Condition,'" by Carrie Baker Link: "The People Who Promised Roe Was Safe Are Already Selling Their Next Bridge," by Dahlia Lithwick Link: "Most Women Denied Abortions by Texas Law Got Them Another Way," by Margot Sanger-Katz, Claire Cain Miller and Quoctrung Bui Link: "‘It will be chaos': 26 states in US will ban abortion if supreme court ruling stands," by Jessica Glenza Link: "How the Right to Birth Control Could Be Undone," by Melissa Murray Visit the Podcast Website: Broken Law Podcast Email the Show: Podcast@ACSLaw.org Follow ACS on Social Media: Facebook | Instagram | Twitter | LinkedIn | YouTube ----------------- Production House: Flint Stone Media Copyright of American Constitution Society 2022.

On today's episode, I'm talking to Social Justice Educator, Researcher, and Coach Dr. Jen Fry about teaching with love.Jen has spent her entire career in higher education, transforming from a collegiate volleyball player to a coach with multiple master's degrees to an academic studying the intersection of race and athletics. Throughout her 15 years as a coach, she met her athletes with compassion and understanding while modeling what it looked like to navigate life's challenges. She just finished her PhD in sport geography, likely making her the first Black woman sport geographer in the world.We talk about:The teachers and coaches who shaped Jen's teaching philosophy.When Jen made a career move outside of collegiate athletics, she found that so many of her skills from running a volleyball program transferred seamlessly. Jen used the sum of her previous experiences to guide her research during her PhD and finish it in only three years. At the end of the episode I shared the free resource I created to help you define your values so you can make sure that you're doing the work that matters to you, no matter what your job or job title is.Grab your free copy of this exercise here!You can find the show notes and more resources at https://madamathlete.comKeep an eye out for new content or let us know what you'd like to see next by following us on social:Instagram:  @theMadamAthleteFacebook:  @MadamAthleteTwitter:  @MadamAthlete

It often feels like machine learning experts are running around with a hammer, looking at everything as a potential nail - they have a system that does cool things and is fun to work on, and they go in search of things to use it for. But what if we flip that around and start by working with people in various fields - education, health, or economics, for example - to clearly define societal problems, and then design algorithms providing useful steps to solve them?Rediet Abebe, a researcher and professor of computer science at UC Berkeley, spends a lot of time thinking about how machine learning functions in the real world, and working to make the results of machine learning processes more actionable and more equitable.Abebe joins EFF's Cindy Cohn and Danny O'Brien to discuss how we redefine the machine learning pipeline - from creating a more diverse pool of computer scientists to rethinking how we apply this tech for the betterment of society's most marginalized and vulnerable - to make real, positive change in people's lives.In this episode you'll learn about:The historical problems with the official U.S. poverty measurement How machine learning can (and can't) lead to more just verdicts in our criminal courtsHow equitable data sharing practices could help nations and cultures around the worldReconsidering machine learning's variables to maximize for goals other than commercial profitThis podcast is supported by the Alfred P.
