The National Network of Abortion Funds (NNAF) works to ensure everyone has access to all reproductive choices.

Read our Mission and Vision Statements to understand how we plan to achieve our goals and what we hope will change once we do. 

Mission Statement

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 Statement

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.

The National Network of Abortion Funds (NNAF) follows four fundamental values.

These principles inform every decision we make when building power for abortion justice. Read more about these core values and understand the beliefs that guide NNAF.

Intersectionality

NNAF recognizes the connections between systems of oppression. A comprehensive vision of justice for our communities must involve working toward 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.

Three people sit at a table with an “abortion funds community fundraiser” banner hanging from the sides. The person on the right has long, straight hair, pale skin, and sits in a wheelchair. The person sitting in a chair on the left has medium-brown skin, coily hair piled on top of their head, and a pen in their hand. The person in the middle has pale skin and short ginger-colored hair; they are wearing a suit jacket and sit in front of a tablet. Balloons fill the room behind them. It’s a party!.
