The American Civil Liberties Union Foundation of Northern California has for a number of years played a leading role in protecting and advancing reproductive health and rights, both in California and throughout the nation. This grant would support its Reproductive Justice Project, which employs integrated litigation, policy advocacy, organizing, and communication strategies to expand reproductive freedom in areas ranging from comprehensive sex education to access to abortion. The project has a particular emphasis on strengthening reproductive health programs in California’s Central Valley, where some of the state’s most vulnerable populations are located. During the last grant period the project led efforts to a number of victories including improved sex education in a major Central Valley school district (Clovis) and reversed restrictive policies on student access to confidential medical care in several California school districts (San Diego, Fairfield).
