The Reproductive Justice Initiative seeks to advance reproductive rights, encourage access to quality healthcare, and support sexual health education. Since 2019, the Reproductive Justice Initiative has partnered with organizations in Mississippi to expand access to care and access to health education for all community members.
In 2020, the RJI team drafted a sexual education policy scan, a legislative brief, and a one-pager for the Mississippi state legislature. Our work focused on legislative advocacy to encourage comprehensive sex education and youth-focused health education in public high schools.
The Reproductive Justice Initiative is excited to continue our partnership with Teen Health Mississippi this year. The Initiative will work with our partner organization to focus on coalition building within the Mississippi community and with state legislators to support sex education across the state.
