This grant to the Center for Reproductive Rights will support its Africa Program, which seeks to protect, respect, and fulfill the full spectrum of reproductive rights in the region. The center’s new five-year strategic plan focuses on roles that build on its comparative advantage in the field as legal and policy leader and effective partner. The center’s Nairobi-based regional office plans to lead and support impact litigation, shape norms and public policies, and conduct strategic advocacy to advance reproductive rights. The center will support locally driven change and build capacity for more effective, sustained local advocacy and legal work.

for the United States Reproductive Rights program
This grant will support the United States Reproductive Rights program to advance and protect laws and policies that ensure women can access reproductive health care, including abortion. Working at the local, national, regional, and global levels, the center conducts high impact litigation, policy reform, and advocacy; cultivates strategic alliances and networks; and develops communications campaigns. Across its work, the center aims to strengthen jurisprudential standards in courts; focus conversations about reproductive rights on women’s dignity, health, and rights; broaden the base of support for reproductive rights; and build the capacity of state and local partners to affect change.

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.
