Join the National Mobilization for Reproductive Justice in saying:

No retreat! Build a militant intersectional movement!


From the U.S. to Iran to Latin America, women are shouting “ENOUGH” to repressive policies and the violation of our bodily autonomy. Relying on politicians and professional experts to protect our rights will always fall short of liberation. The power to create change resides in collective grassroots action. This fight is about abortion rights, yes, but reproductive justice and the issues of our time demand more! #MyDecisionAlone

What we call for:
• Restore & expand Roe v. Wade;
safe, legal abortion on demand without apology
• Repeal the Hyde Amendment
• Overturn state barriers to reproductive choices
• Stop forced sterilization
• No to caged kids, forced assimilation, & child welfare abuses
• End medical & environmental racism; for universal healthcare
• Defend queer & trans families
• Guarantee medically sound sex education & affordable childcare
• Sexual self-determination for people with disabilities
• Uphold social progress with expanded voting rights & strong unions
