Current Partners

State & local partner
State Infrastructure Project - Ohio

NIRH works with a cohort of organizations in Ohio on a long-term proactive abortion policy and culture shift project 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. This project includes Ohio Coalition for Reproductive Choice, Preterm Cleveland, Pro-Choice Ohio, Unite for Reproductive Gender Equity, and Women Have Options, Inc.

State & local partner
Pro-Choice Ohio

NIRH has worked with Pro-Choice Ohio (formerly NARAL Pro-Choice Ohio) for many years to protect abortion access on both the state and local levels. We are currently working together as part of a cohort of organizations in Ohio 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 women's lives. In 2020, we partnered in coalition with Pro-Choice Ohio, Planned Parenthood of Greater Ohio, and Restoring Our Own Through Transformation (ROOTT) to advance a non-discrimination ordinance to protect people who live and work in Columbus against retaliation for any reproductive healthcare decision, including but not limited to accessing abortion care, using birth control, having a baby, or lactation needs. This initiative built on Columbus's progress toward realizing many of the policy objectives enshrined in the Local Reproductive Freedom Index. In 2009, Pro-Choice Ohio won passage of a resolution by the Columbus City Council supporting fair hearings on the Ohio Prevention First Bill and developed educational resources for the community on available reproductive health services.  

Past Partners

Local partner
ROOTT (Restoring Our Own Through Transformation)

In 2020, NIRH worked with Restoring Our Own Through Transformation (ROOTT), Pro-Choice Ohio, and Planned Parenthood of Greater Ohio, in partnership with other coalition members to introduce a non-discrimination ordinance to protect people who live and work in Columbus against retaliation for any reproductive healthcare decision, including but not limited to accessing abortion care, using birth control, having a baby, or lactation needs. This initiative built on Columbus's progress toward realizing many of the policy objectives enshrined in the Local Reproductive Freedom Index’s Model City, including affording protections for people based on gender identity, protecting abortion clinics, and embracing comprehensive sexuality education curricula in schools and city health centers.
