ABORTION ACCESS IN CRISIS
In May 2019, we saw a cascade of states - Alabama, Missouri, Georgia, Kentucky, Mississippi, Ohio, Iowa, Louisiana, Utah, and North Dakota - banning abortion from six weeks to conception, with additional bans being introduced in at least another 28 states. Currently, 29 million U.S. women of reproductive age (43%) live in states that are hostile and very hostile to abortion access and reproductive autonomy.
In response to these bans, and in solidarity with the nationwide protests of these
attacks on women’s self-determination and autonomy, Social Movements + Innovation is announcing labs for small teams to develop innovative strategies to address this crisis and expand the reproductive justice movement.
