AAPI Women’s Lives, Families, and Communities at Stake
NAPAWF is leading efforts by reproductive justice, rights and health organizations to oppose federal judicial nominees that threaten reproductive justice, women of color and our communities. Federal judges will vote in decisions that will shape the lives of women of color and the movement for reproductive justice for generations. What’s more, these judges will have lifetime appointments and could sit on the courts for decades. The stakes could not be higher for AAPI women – our lives, our bodies, our families, and our communities are literally on the line.
As part of our work, NAPAWF is working with In Our Own Voice: National Black Women's Reproductive Justice Agenda and the National Latina Institute for Reproductive Health to elevate the voices of women of color on federal judicial nominees and the importance of the federal courts and their integrity to our communities as women of color, immigrants, parents, young people, workers, LGBTQ people and more. This fight for our courts is about more than one issue - it is about all the issues that are at stake for our communities: affordable healthcare, civil rights, abortion access, voting rights, immigrant rights, LGBTQ rights, criminal justice, workers’ rights, and more. Our bodies, our families and our communities are all on the line, so we must fight.
