             THE TIDES REPRODUCTIVE JUSTICE FUND
             Protecting and advancing the rights of women and
                        girls is central to democracy.



In order to achieve social and economic justice, women and girls need quality,
 affordable health care; the right to bear and parent children; access to safe
and legal abortions; a commitment to end domestic violence; and the removal
of environmental health threats.

                                             The Tides Reproductive Justice
                                             Fund addresses these issues
                                             head-on. Since 2003, the Fund
                                             has granted over $2.7 million to
                                             45 organizations. In 2006, the
                                             Reproductive Justice Fund made a
                                             total of $801,985 in grants to 24
                                             reproductive justice organiza-
                                             tions in 12 states and the District
                                             of Columbia.

                                              We are bringing together a wide
                                              spectrum of women to build a
                                              grassroots     movement       that
                                              resonates with the public and has
                                              the power to win real victories at
                                              the local, state, and federal
                                              levels. The Fund helps build this
practical strength by supporting efforts to engage underrepresented women —
specifically including women of color, low-income, young, rural, immigrant,
LGBT, and incarcerated women.

Underlying this work is the fact that women’s rights need to become a more
integral part of the progressive movement. By funding organizations that are
actively building bridges between reproductive justice and other social justice
work — the reproductive health impact of environmental pollution, for example
— the Reproductive Justice Fund is working to pull women’s issues out from the
margins and into the center of national politics.
