Local Reproductive Justice Agenda
What is the Local Reproductive Justice Agenda?
The powers of city and county governments to expand abortion access and support reproductive justice are often overlooked. Our collaborative understands the importance of local politics in the well-being of our communities. We know that we must fight for abortion justice at EVERY level of government, so we created the Local Reproductive Justice Agenda.
Our agenda is a series of policy recommendations and advocacy guidelines supported by our collaborative campaigns. The Local RJ Agenda seeks to empower Georgians to advocate for their municipalities to use both policy and programmatic power to achieve their constituents’ full reproductive health and freedom.
While Amplify’s local campaigns are currently focused in Atlanta, Dekalb County, and Athens/Clarke County, we hope that healthcare providers, organizers, elected officials, faith leaders, and all abortion-positive citizens in every Georgia municipality use these resources. Learn more about what each local campaign is up to here:
If you are interested in supporting abortion access and reproductive justice outside of the municipalities where Amplify is currently working, we hope you decide to sign on to our Local RJ Agenda to get plugged in with an amazing network of Reproductive Health/Rights/Justice organizations and to receive resources about how you can get started in your city.
No matter where you live in Georgia, if you’re interested in learning more about how to get involved in your local reproductive justice movement, you can schedule a time to chat with Yemi, our Local Campaign Coordinator.
