About - National Network of Abortion Funds

NATIONAL NETWORK OF ABORTION FUNDS

Mission

The National Network of Abortion Funds builds power with members to remove financial and logistical barriers to abortion access by centering people who have abortions and organizing at the intersections of racial, economic, and reproductive justice.

Vision

We envision a world where every reproductive decision, including abortion, takes place in thriving communities that are safe, peaceful, and affordable. We envision a world where all people have the power and resources to care for and affirm their bodies, identities, and health for themselves and their families—in all areas of their lives. As we shift the conversation about abortion, it will become a real option, accessible without shame or judgment.

Values

Intersectionality

NNAF recognizes the connections between systems of oppression. A comprehensive vision of justice for our communities must involve working towards economic, racial, gender, and reproductive justice.

Autonomy

Every person has the non-negotiable human right to determine whether, when, and how to create family. People deserve unrestricted access to the rights, information, and resources to care for themselves and their families.

Collective Power

NNAF is determined to build a base of shared power from the ground while standing alongside other movements in solidarity. People who are most directly and disproportionately impacted by structural barriers are the best architects of solutions that center their voices, experiences, and leadership.

Compassion

NNAF advocates for a reduction of shame and an increase in compassion for people as they navigate life. Reproductive coercion, burdens, and barriers to reproductive healthcare are all forms of violence.

For some of our communities, relentless crises have been ignored, seen as exaggerated, irrelevant, or simply an unfortunate fact of life. […]

    The death of Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg in September was only the most recent tragedy in the wave of natural and man-made disasters that have threatened abortion access this year. In the midst of this upheaval, we’re grounding ourselves in what connects our struggles and our solutions. In the reproductive justice framework we’ve […]
