What is Reproductive Justice (RJ)?
Reproductive Justice is a framework that encompasses the rights of all people to 1) HAVE children when they are ready, and have access to the necessary support for healthy pregnancy, birth and parenting experiences; 2) NOT HAVE children and have access to the sexual and reproductive health services including contraception, comprehensive sexuality education and abortion; 3) parent the children we have in healthy environments that are free of violence, both interpersonal and institutional.
Who Are We?
California Latinas for Reproductive Justice (CLRJ) is a statewide organization committed to honoring the experiences of Latinas/x to uphold our dignity, our bodies, sexuality, and families. We build Latinas’/x power and cultivate leadership through community education, policy advocacy, and community-informed research.
What Are We Doing?
Over the next 4 weeks, CLRJ is raising $5,000 to train 4 Latina/x leaders and knock on 1,000 doors in Southeast Los Angeles to encourage families to raise their voices by getting out the vote. Over the past five years, CLRJ has invested in door-knocking and building relationships with some of the most underserved neighborhoods in Southeast Los Angeles. Simultaneously, CLRJ has invested in the leadership development of countless young Latinas/x eager for change. This month four of our most dynamic and talented leaders along with our voter engagement team will reconnect with families directly at their doorstep, and ask them to get out the vote. On March 26, 2019 Senate District 33 in Southeast Los Angeles will be having a special primary election. Our leaders will talk to community about the importance of harnessing our collective power and voting to make our presence felt and our voices heard.
This is a critical part of our long term work. At CLRJ we understand that voting is just one of the ways in which we can exercise our power, and we intend to continue informing our communities about how we can hold elected officials accountable after casting our ballots.
How Can You Help? You too can be part of the Reproductive Justice Movement!
When we build Latina/x leadership we empower our communities to use their voices and harness their power to make change happen! Your donation to our campaign will help us build the leadership of 4 Latinas/xs and reach 1,000 Latina/x families. More importantly, your donation is a long term investment in the Latina/x leadership we are seeking to build statewide.
Your donation represents a way for you to contribute to the cultivation of Latina/x leadership across the state that supports and uplifts the 7.5 million Latinas/x and their families who are impacted by the policy advocacy and leadership development work that CLRJ has taken on in the state of California.
