State & National Action

Artist: Melanie Cervantes

Building power at the state level.

Description

We believe every person should have health, safety and self-determination in every aspect of their lives. We look through the lenses of race, gender and sexuality at how policies intersect with people and communities.

We work on issues like

  • Securing healthcare access, including abortion;
  • Ensuring that our communities are safe from state-based and gender-based violence; and
  • Recognizing that all family formations deserve policies like paid sick leave and paid family leave.

We take a state-based approach to building power for our families, working in New Mexico and Oregon and partnering closely with groups in Virginia, Florida, Georgia, Colorado and Montana.
