Advocacy and Education

Reclaim has identified the fundamental need to protect the reproductive health decisions of individuals from the interference of legislative restrictions that are not science-based and do not advance safety, but, in fact, obstruct pregnant people from making personal decisions safely.

We are uniquely suited to a high level of advocacy work because of our founding officers’ long-standing history of and reputation for successful abortion rights advocacy and innovative abortion care.  The relationships that our founders have cultivated over the last 50+ years are invaluable, and position Reclaim to move this work forward quickly. We expand connections to continue advocacy work by offering local events and meetings to share information and listen to the concerns within our communities.

Through this work, Reclaim aims to improve the state of reproductive rights and health care in Michigan. We educate supporters, legislators, and the public on the dangers of legislation that continues to impede access to safe and legal abortion. We work to advance proactive legislation so that the rights and private decisions of Michigan families are protected and secured. Together with you, our communities, our partners, and coalitions, Reclaim will continue to increase awareness and support for legislation and policies that further improve and support the health of individuals and families.
