About this campaign

Atlanta is a critical hub of abortion providers in the south. People of all backgrounds cross county and state lines to access abortion care within Atlanta’s city limits. This campaign prioritizes furthering a reproductive justice agenda and expanding abortion access within the city through local policy change and community education.

mission

Amplify’s Atlanta campaign seeks to grow and harness municipal power to expand access to safe, dignified, and affordable abortion care. With leadership from our partners at New Georgia Project and SisterSong, we also work to support our local abortion providers and educate community members about the importance of reproductive justice policy at the local level.

VISION

In the face of state-level attacks on abortion access in Georgia and across the country, Amplify envisions an Atlanta where where self-managed abortion is decriminalized, anti-abortion centers are restricted, and city funding is allocated toward abortion care for those who need it most. Additionally, we know that Atlanta can support Reproductive Justice initiatives in many ways, such as implementing comprehensive sexual education curricula, investing in menstrual equity, and passing clinic safety ordinances.
