Supporting and Centering People of Color Initiative
The realization of reproductive justice depends on how people of color are centered in the movement.
Reproductive justice cannot be achieved without racial justice. The Supporting and Centering People of Color Initiative allows If/When/How to explicitly demonstrate our commitment to the foundational principles of reproductive justice, both externally and internally. The Initiative has three main goals:
- highlight the voices and experiences of people of color in all aspects of If/When/How;
- create an organizational environment, curriculum, and programs that center people of color; and
- provide context, education, and support for white co-conspirators to recognize and leverage their privilege, as well as understand and define their roles in the Initiative and reproductive justice movement.
As the If/When/How team has built out our SCPOC programming for people of color and for white co-conspirators, we have found the following readings and materials helpful →
