HerStory

Last fall, five Black Women’s RJ organizations met with Communications Consortium Media Center to finalize a new policy-based partnership based on the principles of Reproductive Justice. For us, Reproductive Justice is the human right to control our bodies, our sexuality, our gender, our work and our reproduction. That right can only be achieved when all women

and girls have the complete economic, social, and political power and resources to make healthy decisions about our bodies, our families, and our communities in all areas of our lives. It is this vision that propels this new initiative.

In Our Own Voice: National Black Women’s Reproductive Justice Agenda will focus on abortion rights and access, contraceptive equity and comprehensive sex education as our key policy issues.
