About the Center


CRRJ seeks to realize reproductive rights and advance reproductive justice by furthering scholarship, bolstering advocacy efforts, and influencing public opinion through innovative, multidisciplinary research, teaching, and convenings. 



CRRJ is dedicated to the pursuit of reproductive justice, maintaining that all people deserve the social, financial, political, and legal conditions required to make genuine choices about reproduction – choices that must be respected, supported, and treated with dignity.  We are particularly concerned about advancing the position of marginalized populations whose reproduction has been forced, denied, or exploited.  The rights to have children, not to have children, and to parent children are of an intimate, fundamental nature and ought to be accessible to all.
