Want to Win on Abortion? Acknowledge the Contributions of Women of Color and Embrace Our Values-Based Approach
By Destiny Lopez and Silvia Henriquez
Women of color who have shaped and are leading the fight for abortion rights and reproductive justice today have not always been recognized for our innovation, strategic insights, and transformative achievements. We have charged forward anyway, while also transforming the terms of the fight. Unfortunately, our history, our political savvy, and our commitment to our values and communities continue to be erased, overshadowed, and critiqued, including by those who claim to be on our side.
