SM+I is launching four opportunities for organizations and social justice leaders to generate and test contentious and disruptive ideas to challenge these abortion bans and expand support for reproductive self-determination.

Through the Reimagining Change Labs, we offer social movement leaders the space and resources to explore and develop and/or test new ideas to address pressing social issues over a 6-month period.

 Designed for teams of 3-6 people, these labs offer online workshops, exercises, support and coaching, and a final in-person convening for teams to share experiences and learnings with one another.

 Benefits from participating in these labs include:

  • Expertly designed and facilitated tools and exercises for working on and with your ideas

  • Individualized coaching for each team

  • A toolkit of methodologies and exercises

  • A learning community of lab teams working across the country on different ideas

  • Access to non-traditional experts from diverse fields

  • Opportunities to network and celebrate together in person at the culmination of the labs

 Applicants can choose between two types of labs - the Ideas Lab or the Prototype Lab depending on where the team is in their process. Please read the lab descriptions carefully and reach out to us at if you need help determining which lab is the right fit for your team.
