Yo Te Apoyo

Lifting Voices of Support for a Woman’s Ability to Make Her Own
 Decisions about Her Pregnancy, Her Family, and Her Future

Yo Te Apoyo. I Support You.

In response to the continuing perception of stigma and shame around experiences of abortion care, the Latina Institute launched the “Yo Te Apoyo. I Support You” campagin to lift the voices of the Latina/x community and our allies in support of our sisters, our daughters, our primas, our tias, and anyone who is making a difficult decision about their pregnancy, their family, and their future. By standing up and standing together, we will fight back against outdated conservative myths about Latina/x views on abortion care, as well as harmful policies that would deny people the care they need. The truth is: our community is supportive. And getting more supportive every day. Together, we will show our support for every person’s ability to make their own decisions about when and whether to become a parent.

“Everyone deserves a shoulder to lean on, a listening ear, a hand to hold. Our communities hold close the values of family, respect, and cariño; we take care of each other. That’s what Yo Te Apoyo is all about –respecting and supporting a person’s ability to make their own decisions about pregnancy, their family, and their future.”
