Civic Engagement

Our civic engagement and organizing work has truly transformed over the past few years. We grew our outreach programs by engaging in coalition partner text programs and mass mailings to voters, and we continued our work organizing actions and visibility campaigns for reproductive justice. In 2021-2023, we conducted 187 outreach events and reached over 3,000 people through our outreach programs. For the first time in our history, we established a trans-specific outreach program and developed over 30 trans-led or trans-affirming partnerships in our first year. Outside of our usual outreach methods, we also engaged in abortion-forward communications-based outreach campaigns including a multi-media campaign that combined billboard, radio, and street art outreach. We are proud of the direction our organizing is headed in, and we are excited to expand on our work even further in the coming year.
