WHO-O stands in solidarity with the Reproductive Justice organizers, advocates, clinic staff, escorts, and folks seeking reproductive healthcare in Texas following the passage of SB 8. We as an organization pride ourselves on building a coalition of support and advocacy. As an organization, we also have a history of centering the voices of white, able-bodied, cis-women above others. This is a history we have been actively working to take accountability for and to intentionally chart a new course for our future. This work is informed by our commitment to the values of Reproductive Justice, a Black feminist framework, and a commitment to center the voices of those most intimately impacted by our work.Read more
