Center for Reproductive Rights works to advance reproductive rights using legal advocacy, public education, and training programs designed to build a new generation of leaders in the field of law. With reproductive rights under persistent attack, the work of the Center’s legal staff is vital. This unrestricted grant would enable the organization to continue its domestic and international litigation and advocacy program as well as its public awareness activities and training programs for new and emerging legal advocates. With the support of the prior grant the Center won a number of important precedent-setting international cases that expand the justification for treating reproductive rights as human rights. In the United States over the past two years, the Center has frequently been the last line of defense, filing lawsuits that successfully stop restrictive state laws passed by anti-choice legislatures. The Center has recently completed a Hewlett-supported project to expand their monitoring and evaluation framework so that they can more clearly track whether their efforts are achieving the intended result.

Grants to this Grantee
for support of the Center for Reproductive Rights Africa program
The Center for Reproductive Rights Africa program uses strategic advocacy, capacity and movement building, and high-impact litigation to ensure that sexual and reproductive health and rights are protected and promoted in law and policy and realized by women and girls across the region. During the grant period, the Center for Reproductive Rights Africa program will work with regional partners through the Africa Reproductive Rights Initiative to collectively advocate against shrinking civic space and opposition to progressive laws and policies that advance sexual and reproductive health and rights at the national and regional levels.
