National Latina Institute for Reproductive Health
NLIRH is the only national reproductive justice organization dedicated to advancing health, dignity, and justice for the 26 million Latinas, their families, and communities in the United States. NLIRH was founded in 1994, the same year as the founding of the reproductive justice (RJ) movement. Since then, the organization has grown to meet the evolving needs of an increasingly diverse and powerful Latina population. NLIRH uses policy change, culture shift, relationship building, and leadership development to advance a reproductive justice agenda informed by the priorities and experiences of activists on the ground. They focus on three critical and interconnected areas: abortion access and affordability; sexual and reproductive health equity; and immigrant women’s health and rights. Simultaneously, NLIRH seeks to build the power of Latinas throughout the country through community organizing, civic engagement, and training and leadership development. Through their multi-pronged approach, NLIRH is able to create change on a multitude of societal levels, including the personal, local, national, and cultural, and has made a real difference in the lives of Latinas and immigrant women around the country.
