Toolkit

Advancing Reproductive Health, Rights & Justice with Local Resolution toolkit is intended for use by local and grassroots advocates to provide guidance, suggestions and resources to introduce proactive reproductive health resolutions in cities and counties. The toolkit was developed as part of a partnership between In Our Own Voice and the National Council for Jewish Women, All*Above All and the National Institute for Reproductive Health.

Any effective advocacy involves collaboration and coordination so that all communities thrive. This toolkit is one more resource to strengthen our collective movements, and an opportunity to work with new partners and grow the movements by raising awareness of local reproductive health, rights and justice issues.

This toolkit is intended for use by the In Our Own Voice strategic partners and their staff to assist in advocacy, policy development and implementation and community engagement. It is intended to be used by persons with all levels of policy experience.

An effective advocacy effort must include many partners and take many forms. This toolkit will assist you in improving and forming a cohesive advocacy strategy and coalition in your state and will lay out the many advocacy efforts that can be utilized at the local, state and national levels. We hope that you will find this toolkit useful.
