On May 2, Politico reported that a majority of justices on the United States Supreme Court have voted to overturn Roe v. Wade, according to a leaked initial draft opinion. The leaked majority decision is not the rule of law.  However, if the Supreme Court overturns Roe v. Wade, as this leaked decision indicates it might, it will strip women of a right they have had for 50 years, and in 13 states with “trigger laws,” abortion will be effectively banned.  

East Bay Community Foundation stands with health advocates fighting for women, especially women of color, those with low income, and those in areas with limited access to health care providers who need access to safe and affordable health care, including abortion.  

Abortion bans and other laws that restrict reproductive rights disproportionately affect people of color and people with low income. Reproductive justice is racial justice. 

We invite you to learn more about and support these local and national organizations who are working tirelessly to provide and protect access to reproductive health care. The organizations listed below are led by and in service of Black, Indigenous, Latinx, Asian American & Pacific Islander (AAPI), South & Southwest Asian and North African (SSWANA) communities, and those impacted by multiple, intersectional systems of oppression. 

You can donate directly on their websites, and EBCF fund advisors can make grant recommendations directly through Donor Central.
