Current Partners

State partner
Cobalt

Currently, NIRH works with Cobalt (formerly NARAL Pro-Choice Colorado) as part of a cohort of organizations in Colorado on a long-term initiative to develop and advance an abortion rights vision, engage a new and broad base of supporters, and reduce shame and stigma by publicly promoting the affirmative value of abortion. In 2019, NIRH worked with Cobalt and COLOR to advance policies that would ensure that all Coloradans, including young people, low-income communities, people of color, public service employees, immigrants, and refugees are able to access the full range of reproductive health care services they need, including contraception and abortion. Both organizations built strong relationships with the Governor’s office as well as other key state-level stakeholders, opening doors to create multi-year strategies to pass bold, proactive, protective reproductive health and rights legislation. With NIRH’s support, organizations in Colorado were galvanized by Cobalt and COLOR  to create the CARE Act (Colorado Access to Reproductive (Health) Equity Act) Coalition. Building new relationships with other organizations has helped to create awareness in communities around Colorado. This project built on NIRH’s partnership with COLOR and Cobalt in 2018, which led to the development and implementation of a multi-pronged approach to galvanizing support for their agenda that incorporated advocacy, messaging, and field efforts. This project involved collaboration with SiX in 2018 and in 2019.

State partner
COLOR

NIRH has worked with the Colorado Organization for Latina Opportunity and Reproductive Rights (COLOR) for several years to change the culture and policy landscape around abortion access and reproductive freedom in Colorado. Currently, NIRH works with COLOR as part of a cohort of organizations in Colorado on a long-term initiative to develop and advance an abortion rights vision, engage a new and broad base of supporters, and reduce shame and stigma by publicly promoting the affirmative value of abortion. In 2019, NIRH worked with COLOR and Cobalt (formerly NARAL Pro-Choice Colorado) to advance policies that would ensure that all Coloradans, including young people, low-income communities, people of color, public service employees, immigrants, and refugees are able to access the full range of reproductive health care services they need, including contraception and abortion.

This project involved collaboration with SiX in 2018 and in 2019. In 2017, NIRH supported COLOR as they engaged with thirteen Denver City Council Members and worked with a city-wide coalition of grassroots and grasstops advocates to build support for the repeal of the Hyde Amendment and for state and federal funding of abortion care. In 2014, NIRH partnered with COLOR to create a #wheresoursexed campaign through their Latinas Increasing Political Strength (LIPS) program to evaluate sex ed implementation in Denver following passage of the Colorado Healthy Youth Act.
