Reproductive Justice in Action

Reproductive Justice in Action is the result of a collaboration between the Barnard Center for Research on Women, Groundswell's Catalyst Fund, the New York Women's Foundation and seventeen of their grantee partners doing reproductive justice work in New York City. Seeking to explore the ways in which these seventeen organizations think about their mission and work, we jointly embarked on a participatory action research project in order to better understand how the organizations relate to (or feel limited by) the model and language of reproductive justice.

Justice at the Intersections: Action for Reproductive and Economic Justice in NYC

This film premiered at the conference “Critical Intersections: Reproductive and Economic Justice” held on September 22, 2010 at Barnard College. The conference and film, as well as a written report, are the result of a multi-tiered collaboration among Groundswell’s Catalyst Fund, The New York Women’s Foundation (NYWF)—seventeen NYWF grantee partners doing reproductive justice work in New York City—and the Barnard Center for Research on Women (BCRW). Together all of these groups are working to enable, expand, document, and enhance the possibilities of creating reproductive justice. In particular, this collaboration was developed to explore the ways in which organizations led by women of color are elaborating reproductive justice in connection with economic justice.

Created by filmmaker Tiona McClodden, this film provides interviews with 16 organizations doing reproductive justice work in New York City. As a group this set of grantee partners is building a new vision for reproductive justice, one that springs from the lives and thoughts of the women with whom they work in New York City.
