Reproductive Justice Organizations:
Officially established in Chicago in 1994, the RJ movement was founded by twelve Black women who were seeking to serve the most marginalized groups of people. RJ combines reproductive health and social justice to address the myriad of systems that support practices of institutional racism which further health inequities for people of color. Black women continue to be the biggest and fiercest advocates of reproductive justice. Our work at Power to Decide over the last 25 years would not have been possible without the groundbreaking framework created by the RJ movement.
