Program areas at National Institute for Reproductive Health

State programs: the National Institute has worked with statewide organizations since its founding, but on the 40th anniversary of roe v. wade in 2013, we formalized that work by launching a long-term initiative to secure Reproductive rights and Health in the states. With an eye toward building traction in states that have been generally hostile to choice, as well as leveraging the opportunities in more progressive states, this initiative is creating a groundswell of support to turn the tide on access to abortion. With our partners in strategic states across the country, we work to build and mobilize the grassroots as advocates for Reproductive Health and rights, engage policymakers, change the public dialogue on Reproductive rights, and alter public policy to increase access to Reproductive Health care, program service accomplishments: including abortion. The National Institute provides space for partners working on similar initiatives to share resources and best practices and offers access to our extensive network of advocates, officials, and allied National organizations spanning a broad range of expertise. We have supported advocates and elected officials in such important work as creating comprehensive policy agendas that support the full spectrum of Reproductive and maternal Health, including abortion, developing policies and other initiatives to increase access to Reproductive Health care, including a specific focus on underutilized forms of contraception, engaging in creative and bold defense against anti-choice bills, and supporting proactive policy on abortion.in 2020, through its partnership programs at the state level, the National Institute focused on protecting and expanding access to abortion care, strengthening advocacy by independent abortion providers, securing access to confidential family planning services, and increasing access to long-acting reversible contraception (larc). As it did so, it sought to advance a proactive abortion rights vision, engage a new and broad base of supporters, and reduce shame and stigma by publicly promoting the affirmative value of abortion in women's lives.among the most notable successes achieved by nirh and its state partners in 2020: Massachusetts and Virginia enacted proactive abortion legislation, repealing major barriers to abortion care. The passage of Virginia's Reproductive Health protection act is particularly important, as it laid groundwork for the commonwealth to become a critical point of access for people seeking abortions across the southeast, a region in dire need. As shutdowns related to the pandemic began, nirh worked to ensure to ensure that Reproductive Health care remained classified as essential in new york, as its partners did so in states including Massachusetts, new jersey, and Virginia. In addition, its Connecticut partner secured resolutions in sixteen towns calling out racism as a public Health emergency. In north carolina, advocates secured a veto of a bill that would have criminalized pregnant people for using rugs, thereby discouraging them from seeking prenatal care and causing families to lose custody of their children. At the beginning of october, governor murphy announced the introduction of new jersey's Reproductive freedom act, which would enshrine the right to make Reproductive decisions into state law, while expanding access to Reproductive Health care, including contraception and abortion.
Torch is a youth focused, peer education program that combines sexual and Reproductive health/rights/justice education and leadership training for new york city black and brown youth. The program incorporates youth driven community action initiatives and fosters strong community partnerships to provide knowledge and empowerment opportunities for young people to make informed choices; to create a new generation of the sexual Reproductive justice movement by fostering awareness and activism; and to offer accessible comprehensive sexuality education, that is medically accurate and inclusive of various identities and experiences.program service accomplishments: of community-based organizations on topics ranging from contraception to healthy adolescent relationships to exploring gender identity to body image and self-esteem. Torch peer leaders also developed and facilitated an entirely youth led teen night on rape culture. Over 40 young people from across nyc participated in this event. Additionally, torch staff presented at two National conferences on the intersectionality of race and sexuality and how to advance social justice in the sex ed classroom. Torch continued to strengthen community relationships in the bronx and brooklyn to build on the comprehensive site project which will bring youth informed comprehensive sexuality education to nyc public school students in low no resource neighborhoods during the school day.
Local programs: in 2007, amid years of setbacks to Reproductive Health and rights on the state and federal levels, the National Institute launched a new initiative to support proactive, local-level advocacy. This strategy presented, and still presents today, an exciting opportunity to move beyond defense to develop and implement Reproductive Health policies that improve and expand access to vital services. Even in the most conservative states, we recognized that dynamic and supportive local leaders may operate in a political climate that makes their localities progressive pockets of possibility. The National Institute, understanding that such leaders already possess valuable regional knowledge and networks, provides the funding, technical assistance, and strategic support they need to develop program service accomplishments: innovative and bold strategies that serve their community and build proactive momentum that reverberates beyond the county line. Since the initiative's launch, we have supported advocates and elected officials in addressing the issues that impact their communities the most, including comprehensive sex education and teen-friendly Reproductive Health care, the deceptive practices of crisis pregnancy centers, public funding for abortion, Reproductive justice for incarcerated women, safe access to abortion clinics for patients, volunteers, and staff, and more.in 2020, through its partnership programs at the local level, the National Institute focused on protecting and expanding access to abortion care. To do so, it partnered with organizations to focus specifically on localities across the country, including chicago, il, columbus, oh, los angeles county, louisville, ky, minneapolis, mn, and south bend, in; these efforts focused on issues such as abortion funding and promoting efforts to safeguard clinics and Health care providers against attacks. Its work in cities also included efforts to cultivate youth leadership in el paso, tx, minneapolis and st. paul, mn, and saginaw, mi, and to support healthy families in bloomington, in and greensboro, nc.
