  • This Pride Month, We Refuse to Turn Back the Clock on Our Health Care

    Pride month is and always has been a political declaration. It is a month to celebrate resiliency and to resist discrimination against the LGBTQ community. This resiliency and resistance is more important than ever as the Trump administration continues its string of relentless attacks on the LGBTQ community.

  • Abortion Restrictions Hurt Women of Color

    Legislators and anti-abortion activists across the country are becoming increasingly explicit about their goal of overturning Roe v. Wade and prohibiting people from accessing abortion care.

  • The EACH Woman Act Matters for Women of Color

    Since 1976, the Hyde Amendment has withheld federal funds for abortion care for women enrolled in Medicaid and other health insurance through the federal government except in cases of rape, incest or life endangerment. This pushes abortion care out of reach of millions of women, particularly women of color.

  • We Decide: Demanding the Policies Pregnant People Need to Thrive

    No one should be denied opportunity, dignity, happiness or respect because of where they live or work or how much money they make. But because of our country’s punitive and inadequate policies, that is precisely what happens every day to people deciding if and when to parent.

  • Standing Up for Scientific Integrity

    Over the past couple of years, the Trump administration has aggressively sidelined science in policymaking – whether by suppressing or misrepresenting evidence, undermining federal grants, or selecting unqualified and conflicted appointees to lead agencies and programs. As a result, our nation’s public health and well-being are suffering.

  • Mid-Term Elections Limit Abortion for Some While Ensuring Access for Others

    Tuesday’s elections brought some mixed results around abortion rights. While Oregon turned out in a big way to reaffirm abortion access for everyone regardless of income, a majority of West Virginia and Alabama voters paved the way for increased abortion restrictions in both states. As with all abortion restrictions, these measures will have the most impact on low-income women, young women, and women of color in these three states.

  • Why the Right to Vote Is a Reproductive Justice Issue

    At a time where reproductive rights face an existential threat from nearly all levels of government, voting can help ensure a future where all women have access to the reproductive health care they need.

  • Circuit Courts Ignore Precedent and Set Up Path to Gut Roe

    In the last few months, we stood alongside our allies across the country to oppose the confirmation of Brett Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court because we knew the dire threat he poses to women and families. ...

  • Labor Day 2018: Congress Needs to Step Up

    Next week the Senate Judiciary Committee will hold hearings on the nomination of Judge Brett Kavanaugh to fill the open seat on the Supreme Court. If Kavanaugh is confirmed, we fear — and expect, based on his record — that workers’ rights and the rights of women will be in grave jeopardy.

  • Women Deserve the Truth

    National Institute of Family and Life Advocates (NIFLA) v. Becerra should be a no-brainer for the Court. It’s a case about the simple proposition that women deserve the truth.

  • Roe at 45: Rising Above the Lies to Realize the Promise of Roe v. Wade

    Forty-five years after the U.S. Supreme Court guaranteed women’s right to abortion in Roe v. Wade, we are still defending that right and working to realize the promise of Roe for millions – especially poor women, young folks and people of color – for whom abortion care remains inaccessible. 

  • Engaging Young Texans to Call Out Politicians Who Turn Lies into Laws

    Last month, our friends at Texas Freedom Network Education Fund’s Texas Rising hosted a series of Lies into Laws Forums on college campuses to call out lawmakers who are turning lies into harmful laws. 

  • This Should Never Happen – Not Here

    Trump’s Office of Refugee Resettlement must not be allowed to prevent undocumented immigrant minors from getting the health care they need.

  • We’re In the Fight of Our Lives – But We’re In It Together

    Experiences like the MAKERS Conference and the Women’s March remind us that we are all in this together and that we must keep challenging ourselves to build a collective force for resistance and change.

  • Trump’s Anti-Woman Cabinet: How It All Adds Up

    From gutting the Affordable Care Act to undermining reproductive health care to weakening workplace protections to opposing measures to stop sexual violence, Trump’s nominees have stood outside the mainstream and against the interests of women. Women must be vigilant and we must resist.

  • Together, we made history at the Women’s March. Now take the next step!

    At the National Partnership, we get it. The Women’s March put the Trump administration and the new Congress on notice, but it was only the first step. Now, we each must do everything we can to create a continuous drumbeat for women’s rights and human rights.
