Silvia HenriquezWelcome to the new blog of the National Latina Institute for Reproductive Health! This blog is meant to be a way to share breaking news about reproductive rights and health, as well as important updates from our organization.

NLIRH is very excited to launch its first blog--the internet is now a powerful tool for broadening discussions beyond the traditional forms of media, many of which young people and people of color have historically been excluded from. Blogs can be important tools for Latina activists--where they get to share their opinions and dialogue about the issues that matter most to them, providing the important analysis from the Latina perspective. Lastly, we hope this tool will supply activists with the tools they need to mobilize their communities by providing up-to-date information on what is happening in reproductive health and rights. The mission of NLIRH is to ensure the fundamental human right to reproductive health for Latinas, their families and their communities through public education, policy advocacy, and community mobilization.

This blog is a way for you to share your opinions on the issues that matter most--es tu vida, tu cuerpo y tu voz! (your life, your body, your voice!)
