Support Reproductive Health, Justice and Reform

The Ms. Foundation for Women has long supported women of color and those with low income to advocate for policies that improve their lives and those of their families and communities. Today, as the health care reform debate poses new threats to reproductive health care coverage, please join us in committing to the reproductive justice movement, which works to ensure that all women across race and class can exercise their reproductive rights. Any gift you make to the Ms. Foundation for Women before November 15th will be worth twice as much, thanks to a generous $100,000 challenge grant.

Help create more policy wins like these of our grantee partners:

  • ACCESS/Women's Health Rights Coalition, California Latinas for Reproductive Justice, the Dolores Huerta Foundation and ACT for Women and Girls defeated Proposition 4, a parental notification initiative, on the California ballot in November 2008.

  • During the 2009 legislative session, West Virginia Free ensured that none of more than 40 anti-choice laws were passed by the state legislature.

  • Since 2008, Migrant Health Promotion has secured access to public transportation for several rural, isolated immigrant communities in South Texas, enabling hundreds of women farmworkers to access reproductive health and family planning services.

Make a gift today and double your support for reproductive justice for low-income women and women of color.
