Using a partnership model, we provide state and local advocates with strategic guidance, hands-on support, and funding to create national change from the ground up.

At the national level, we engage in groundbreaking public opinion research and original reports, proactive policy initiatives, and innovative advocacy campaigns to shape a new national conversation about reproductive freedom.  We’re also known for our signature initiatives, including the Local Reproductive Freedom Index and TORCH, our nationally recognized youth leadership and peer education program.

The National Institute supports advocates and organizations who are addressing reproductive health, rights, and justice issues that impact their communities the most. We encourage and support our partners in taking calculated risks; pursuing bold strategies; and developing innovative, proactive approaches to expand access to reproductive health care, including abortion.
