CRRJ Reproductive Justice Virtual Library

Native Americans and Indigenous communities have survived various forms of reproductive oppression.

Featured Resource

Respondents to our survey about what to include in the first phase of the library indicated strong support for briefs and reports authored by reproductive justice organizations. The survey indicated that reproductive justice activists rely on this type of resources the most for information about the framework and the movement. With that in mind, we are featuring a report by California Latinas for Reproductive Justice called, Unearthing Latina/o Voices on Family, Pregnancy, and Reproductive Justice.
