Arizona

Reproductive Equity Arizona (REA) was a new organization launched in 2019 formed to galvanize support for reproductive justice work across Arizona. With support and guidance from NIRH, REA dove into this work through a coalition-building initiative with ally organizations who lead work on issues such as immigrant, economic, racial, and LGBTQ rights and equity, and strengthening relationships with local-level policymakers. The project included a culminating event that introduced the reproductive justice framework to local level policymakers, administrators, and grasstops leaders and will provide those stakeholders with reproductive justice-informed policy recommends and guidance. Through this critical community outreach and strategic communications, this project built Reproductive Equity Arizona as a long-term leader for reproductive health, rights, and justice work.
