Who We Are

Who We Are

Our Mission 

National Latina Institute for Reproductive Justice (the Latina Institute) builds Latina/x power to fight for the fundamental human right to reproductive health, dignity, and justice. We center Latina/x voices, mobilize our communities, transform the cultural narrative, and drive policy change. We amplify the grassroots power and thought leadership of Latinas/xs across the country to fuel a larger reproductive justice movement.

About the Latina Institute 

The Latina Institute fights for equal access to reproductive health for Latina/x communities. We are a national organization headquartered in New York City and with offices in Washington, D.C., Florida, New York, Texas, and Virginia.  

For too long, complex systems of oppression have robbed Latinas/xs of the resources we need to make informed decisions about our bodies and lives. To overcome these barriers, we are building a base of activists across states, shifting culture, and shaping policies informed by our lived realities. The strong base of leaders we’ve grown since our founding in 1994 has created lasting change at the local, state, and national levels—from expanding abortion access and affordability to securing im/migrant reproductive health rights. 

At the Latina Institute, we know we are not the only voice for reproductive justice; it is an intersectional movement. We support and work in partnership with other organizations, initiatives, and activities led by people of color.
