Supporting a movement of state-based advocates

States have become the battleground for attacks on abortion rights, but they also present possibilities for positive change. The National Institute partners with state-based organizations to advance access to reproductive health care.

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.
