The NAACP and our local branch reaffirm the organization’s commitment to Reproductive Justice.
In light of the recent developments in the Supreme Court concerning women’s health, we recognize the urgency of this issue that stands to have a devastating impact for women of every race and economic class, and which disproportionately impacts women of color, especially in lower income communities.
“It is evidently clear at this time that the future of our democracy hangs in the balance. This Supreme Court is turning back to a dangerous era where basic constitutional rights only exist for a select few. They’ve stripped away our right to vote, and now women have lost their right to their own body. What’s next?” said Portia White, NAACP Vice President of Policy and Legislative Affairs.
For all women – we are here for you, we see you, and we will continue to support you.”
