The National Institute for Reproductive Health promotes reproductive rights and expands access to reproductive healthcare through bold advocacy, creative education campaigns, and high-impact local partnerships in New York and across the country.
The 501(c)3 sister organization of NARAL Pro-Choice New York, the National Institute works to help women in communities across the country gain access to the full range of quality reproductive health care options, the freedom to exercise their reproductive rights, and the opportunity to have healthy pregnancies. To meet these goals, the Institute focuses on three interrelated strategies:
• Building a National Network of Local and State Advocates: through technical assistance and capacity building, we seek to build networks of local and state advocates and policymakers, as well as individuals, working together to create and promote policy solutions
• Pursuing Proactive and Creative Defensive Policy Initiatives: by securing a set of strategic “wins,” we seek to build a positive narrative and advance our agenda
• Changing the Conversation: through bold new messages and multiple communications platforms, we seek to move the public conversation on abortion, contraception, and sexual health
