Very excited to have Yellowhammer Fund’s Amanda Reyes quoted in this fantastic article about reproductive justice groups in the South.
“We focus on what we can control. We can use our collective resources and networks to make sure people in our community get the care they need. When you prioritize getting care for your community, that’s a radical perspective,” Reyes said. “It’s easy to scapegoat the South for all of these anti-choice laws, but they don’t come from the people. [Abortion funds] are focused on the people in the country who are the most marginalized. No matter what changes, we need to keep focusing on making sure the people in our communities who need abortions can get them without being criminalized.”
Be sure to read the whole piece here, and check out all of the other amazing activists doing the work. We are so honored to be able to consider them all allies.
