Emily’s List

In Their Own Words:

We elect pro-choice Democratic women to office. Our vision is a government that reflects the people it serves, and decision makers who genuinely and enthusiastically fight for greater opportunity and better lives for the Americans they represent. We will work for larger leadership roles for pro-choice Democratic women in our legislative bodies and executive seats so that our families can benefit from the open-minded, productive contributions that women have consistently made in office.

NARAL Pro-Choice America

In Their Own Words:

We are made up of pro-choice women and men across the United States. Together, we’re protecting and expanding reproductive freedom. We lobby Congress to convince your elected representatives to support your right to choose. We organize women and men to make sure that lawmakers hear from the pro-choice people they represent. We connect what happens in Congress or in the states to how it affects your ability to make private decisions, like choosing legal abortion.
We work with our state affiliates to advance ideas that are good for women’s freedom. We fight back against the bad ideas that threaten our privacy. NARAL Pro-Choice America uses the political process to elect lawmakers who share our pro-choice values and defeat candidates who don’t.

National Institute for Reproductive Health

In Their Own Words:

The National Institute works at the state and local level to promote reproductive rights and expand access to reproductive health care through bold advocacy, creative education campaigns, and high-impact partnerships.

The National Institute for Reproductive Health works across the country to increase access to reproductive health care by changing public policy, galvanizing public support, and normalizing women’s decisions to have abortions and use contraception. Believing that a bottom-up strategy is necessary to create lasting change, we work through a partnership model, providing support in the form of funding, capacity building, strategic guidance, and technical assistance and building connections between and among partner organizations at the local, state, and national levels. We encourage and support our partners in taking calculated risks, pursuing bold strategies, and developing innovative, proactive approaches to expand access to reproductive health care, including abortion. The National Institute’s partnership work is supplemented with independent research, original reports, educational campaigns, and signature initiatives, including our nationally recognized youth leadership and peer education program, TORCH. By working to strengthen local and state movements to secure access to reproductive health care, we create lasting impact on the national level.

Reproductive Health Access Project

In Their Own Words:
