URGE: Unite for Reproductive & Gender Equity

From the Executive Director

United for Reproductive & Gender Equity was co-founded in 1992 by Gloria Steinem, an American feminist, activist, and writer.

URGE envisions a world where all people have agency over their own bodies and relationships, and the power, knowledge, and tools to exercise that agency. URGE builds this vision by engaging young people in creating and leading the way to sexual and reproductive justice for all by providing training, field mobilization, and national leadership for a youth-driven agenda.

✊🏽✊🏾✊🏿 #StopTheBans #AbortionSolidarity #repost @unitedwedream ・・・ Criminalizing people for obtaining abortion care opens the door for members of our community to be deported. These bans are part of the same list of white supremacist attacks against immigrants, people of color, poor people, and womxn! #StopTheBans #AbortionSolidarity
