We approach our advocacy as a matter of Human Rights and Reproductive Justice. We apply a Reproductive Justice lens in the way we conceptualize HIV policy issues and innovate community-based solutions to those issues from the grassroots up. In order to meaningfully address the impact of HIV/AIDS and other sexual and reproductive oppressions on women of color, we center the experiences of those directly impacted by the epidemic and the social determinants of health that shape sexual and reproductive health outcomes.  

Our policy and advocacy work largely entails:  

We engage with the federal and state agencies to pursue (and defend against) policies  that have an impact on communities of color, women, youth, and other key populations disparately impacted by prevailing reproductive health inequities and structural oppression. 

We identify and mobilize a broad base of women and youth living with and affected by HIV/AIDS and other forms of reproductive oppression, through education, outreach, and public engagement. 

We connect, consult, and collaborate with advocates at local, state, and national levels to ensure that diverse and marginalized voices are taken into account by policymakers. 

We inform public debate on reproductive justice issues by producing  intersectional policy writing intended to elevate diverse stakeholders’ understanding through online, print, radio, and television news sources. 



We equip community and service providers with an awareness of the unique challenges facing women and communities of color, as well as tools to implement justice-based strategies in a variety of settings.

​Our advocacy program centers and empowers people living with HIV (PLHIV) and communities disparately impacted by HIV and other sexual and reproductive health disparities.

Additionally, we seek to educate community service providers of the issues paramount to achieving equity and opportunity for our communities to thrive. Those providers include: 

  • Professional service providers including clinicians, attorneys, and researchers.

  • Teachers, counselors, and other educators

  • Community and religious organizations

  • Social service organizations
