Following the Supreme Court's recent overturning of Roe V. Wade, thousands of women found themselves suddenly without access to vital reproductive healthcare services. Among the demographics most affected are minorities and people in low-income communities who cannot afford to travel to another state to procure abortions and other procedures.
As recently shared by our CEO Bess Freedman, Brown Harris Stevens supports the right to choose, which is why our firm will provide up to $4,000 in travel expenses to employees in need of abortions who live in states currently restricting access. We understand, however, that there are still so many in need of reproductive healthcare who cannot access these types of benefits.
Here are eight organizations you can support that are advocating for women's reproductive health in various ways, from lobbying for policy changes to connecting those in need with services and supports.
