For Healthy And Free Tennessee's Southeast Alliance For Reproductive Empowerment Project

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.
