Political Research Associates launched an Indiegogo fundraising campaign today to produce and distribute the 2013 “Defending Reproductive Justice” ARK to women’s rights groups and educators across the country.
Forty years after Roe v. Wade, reproductive health in the U.S. is still widely under attack. New legislation has appeared in several states restricting access to healthcare and birth control, and in Mississippi, the last abortion clinic is hanging by a thread. The 2013 edition of “Defending Reproductive Justice” will serve as an updated and thorough resource to women’s advocates in today’s political climate, highlighting new legislative challenges, analysis of right-wing messaging strategies, and methods to combat antichoice movements domestically and abroad.
PRA plans to provide this resource free of charge to as many activists, educators, and gender justice organizations as possible–but we need your support. Your donation will help us:
- Complete production and printing of hundreds of copies of the resource kit
- Debut the Activist Resource Kit at this year’s CLPP (Civil Liberties and Public Policy) conference
- Provide the kits free-of-charge to women’s rights groups everywhere
- Fund the updating and dissemination of Activist Resource Kits in the future
If we exceed our goal of $5,000, we will use the additional funds to create a resource guide for youth on harmful abstinence-only programs and other sexual health issues facing young adults. We will also use it to provide further research and analysis to reproductive justice organizers, as well as legislative groups like Choice USA and Advocates for Youth.
PRA is committed to fighting for the promise of Roe nationwide. Learn more about the campaign here.
