WHAT IS REPRODUCTIVE JUSTICE?

In our vision where Reproductive Justice is the standard, all women and girls have the complete economic, social, political power and resources to make healthy decisions about our bodies, families, and communities. When we step into the world “living a Reproductive Justice life,” the resources we need are abundant—resources like accessible health care, quality education, affordable housing, clean air and water, and safe neighborhoods.

WHAT DOES IT MEAN TO LIVE A RJ LIFE?

EMPOWERED! UPLIFTED! HONORED!

In the face of injustice, white supremacy, and a global pandemic, Black women, femmes, and girls demand equity, justice, and peace. We deserve to thrive! This is what Living a RJ Life means:

  • Raising our voices and demanding that elected officials and community leaders vote in favor of policies that positively impact our communities.
  • Having full bodily autonomy and having the resources to provide for ourselves and our family.
  • Having the freedom to express our gender and sexual identity in the way that feels most authentic to you.
  • Being able to love whomever our heart calls us to.
  • Being gainfully employed and paid a living wage.
  • Raising our children in safe communities free from over-policing and environmental dangers.
