Description

The legal right to have an abortion or obtain contraceptive care does not mean much if these rights are inaccessible. The Reproductive Justice Movement is a contemporary movement and a framework coined by 12 visionary Black women in 1994 that centers the voices and concerns of marginalized communities in conversations relating to reproduction, sexuality, and families.

Incorporating a reproductive justice framework to our reproductive health and rights work demands that we dig deeper than a traditional “pro-choice” lens by taking into account the ways in which an individual’s identities, communities, and other systems of oppression may impact access to key reproductive health care services and rights. Learn more about the Reproductive Justice Movement and why we are committed to working alongside communities of color to bring this framework to our existing work.
