National Mobilization for Reproductive Justice


Remember Rosie Jimenénez

The U.S. Supreme Court will hear a challenge to Roe v. Wade this fall. Join the movement to defend the right of women and all people to control their own bodies.

    What we call for:

  • Protect & 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
  • Uphold social progress with expanded voting rights & strong unions
