Our State Partners in North Carolina
Seizing the momentum of recent activism on reproductive justice issues in Durham City and County, including paid family leave for employees and a renewed interest in Women's Commissions, NARAL Pro-Choice North Carolina is engaging in a grassroots campaign for a local resolution supporting the repeal of the Hyde Amendment and similar funding bans. In light of the toxic state-level climate on reproductive rights, which includes bans on public, private, and municipal insurance coverage of abortion, the effort to pass this resolution is a vital step forward in changing the conversation about the importance of safe, affordable, and accessible abortion care.
In 2014, with the National Institute's support, NARAL Pro-Choice North Carolina engaged in public education, community engagement, and coalition building around the regulatory process for the state’s new TRAP law. A critical component of this work was engaging non-traditional allies and youth. The organization also contributed to a process that prevented Department of Health and Human Services regulations from significantly restricting the practice of abortion clinics in North Carolina.
In 2013, NARAL Pro-Choice North Carolina coordinated the She Decides online legislative advocacy campaign.
In 2011, NARAL Pro-Choice North Carolina released a report on crisis pregnancy centers and successfully advocated for passage of a resolution opposing their deceptive practices in the Chapel Hill Town Council.
