The Local Reproductive Freedom Index is an initiative that evaluates the reproductive health, rights, and justice policies of 50 U.S. cities and municipalities. It also offers advocates and policymakers a roadmap of concrete steps they can take to build stronger, healthier communities.
A project of the National Institute for Reproductive Health (NIRH) and the National Women’s Health Network (NWHN), Increasing Access to Long-Acting Reversible Contraception & Protecting Patient Autonomy: A Resource For Evaluating LARC Public Policy Initiatives is a toolkit designed to support reproductive health, rights, and justice advocates assess proposed legislation or policy initiatives related to long-acting reversible contraception (LARC).
These LARC toolkits are based on NIRH’s partnership with Planned Parenthood League of Massachusetts and Brigham & Women’s Hospital as part of the 2016 LARC Access Project and intended to support organizations interested in replicating this work.
The National Institute for Reproductive Health (NIRH) is setting the record straight about what the Reproductive Health Act actually does, and why proactive legislation that increases access to reproductive freedom is critical at a time when the Trump-Pence administration continues to attack these rights.
The National Institute for Reproductive Health’s 2018 End of Year Report, Gaining Ground: Proactive Reproductive Health and Rights Legislation in the States analyzes state advocates’ and legislators’ work to advance reproductive health, rights, and justice through proactive policy throughout 2018 – enacting the highest number of proactive bills since NIRH started keeping track.
