About Us

According to their website,[1]

Our mission: We inspire, educate, train and support new activists and leadership to secure reproductive and sexual rights, freedom, and justice for everyone.
Our vision: A world where reproductive justice is a basic human right & the conditions to attain it are available to everyone.
Reproductive justice, a term coined by Black women in 1994, expands the conversation around abortion rights to include the impacts of racism and other intersecting oppressions.
At Civil Liberties and Public Policy, we know that, in addition to abortion access, people need access to contraception, culturally proficient healthcare, housing, healthy food, safe environments, and the power and resources to realize those rights.
We take the reproductive justice framework to heart, creating a platform for social justice movements to weave together their work and mobilize across communities."

"Linking White Supremacy and Anti-Abortion Movements: Do you know how white supremacists on the right are strategizing to advance their movements? How are white nationalist movements linked to gender-based violence and anti-abortion politics? How much of our higher education has been infiltrated by far right funders and how can we reclaim the state of our knowledge production? Join Carol Mason, professor of gender studies at University of Kentucky; Dania Rajendra; Jalessah Jackson, Georgia Coordinator at SisterSong; and Jasmine Banks, Executive Director of UnKoch My Campus for a deep dive into the connections between racism, anti-Semitism, white supremacy, and reproductive politics.
