This grant will support Healthy and Free Tennessee to continue its role as one of the founding alliance members of SEARE, a Southern regional partnership working to build a stronger, more visible reproductive health, rights, and justice movement in the Southeast. The project brings together organizations throughout the region to strengthen capacity and effectiveness to organize and mobilize constituencies in support of reproductive justice. The project has a strong focus on racial equity in order to unify the movement. It has an explicit aim of dismantling white supremacy within organizations, the movement, and ultimately the region. It does this through trainings, communications, and engagement, and documenting its own journey as a multiracial partnership to build strong, trusting alliances. The partnership believes that without this, the movement is weaker and less likely to grow the power it needs to secure full equitable access to reproductive rights and health information and services in the Southeast.

Grants to this Grantee
for support of the State Infrastructure Fund voting rights portfolio
The State Infrastructure Fund is a donor collaborative fund based at NEO Philanthropy that works to increase civic participation and advance voting rights among people of color and other historically underrepresented communities. To achieve these goals, it funds programs that increase voter participation rates and advances the voting rights of historically disenfranchised communities through advocacy, litigation, voter mobilization, and robust election protection efforts.
for the Abortion Access Front project
Abortion Access Front (AAF), formerly Lady Parts Justice League, uses humor and real-time media to destigmatize abortion and expose antichoice forces working to dismantle access to reproductive rights in the United States. AAF breaks daily reproductive rights news and analysis; engages audiences through funny videos, live broadcasts, and social media; and is a trusted source for rapid response information. It also provides on-the-ground aid, morale boosting, and community building to abortion providers servicing low-income and people of color audiences in states that are politically hostile to abortion.
