NLIRH’s Policy and Advocacy Program works to advance the reproductive health and rights of Latinas around the country. Our policy agenda reflects the voice of the Latino community, and is garnered from the realities and concerns of our activists on the ground through the work of our Community Mobilization department. At NLIRH, we strongly believe that our policy work must be informed by the needs of our community; our policy agenda and recommendations reflect this.
