Sign-on Letter: The Right to Vote Is a Reproductive Health, Rights, & Justice Issue

A joint sign-on letter hosted by URGE and State Innovation Exchange (SiX) on the intersections of voting and repro health, rights, and justice signed by 124 organizations and 36 state legislators! We know that reproductive freedom and voting rights and access are intrinsically linked. Equitable access to the vote means better representation of our communities and responsiveness to our basic needs like comprehensive healthcare, including contraception, maternal care, abortion care, and comprehensive sex education. Moreover, equitable access to the ballot box allows us to focus on justice and liberation, which increases bodily autonomy and integrity for many marginalized communities especially Black and Brown people, young people, and queer, transgender, and nonbinary people.
