Since it began, KRCRC has worked to reach out beyond its Louisville roots. Our volunteers and Outreach Coordinators are available to meet with individuals or groups throughout the state, wherever there is interest in organizing a reproductive justice group. It only takes a few individuals to begin a group. KRCRC can provide resources, speakers and discussion facilitators, workshops, videos, publications, etc. Some members throughout the state have sponsored KRCRC booths at county fairs and school, church or community events. If you would like to connect with others in your area, contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Those coping with a problem pregnancy may choose to meet with a clergy person trained to provide compassionate (all-options) care. These clergy support women in finding a path through a problem pregnancy that is right for them and their families. Clergy neither judge nor try to persuade women to pursue one option over another. For a referral to clergy for compassionate care, contact us at email@example.com.
If you are a member of the clergy and would like to offer compassionate (all-options) care to women and families coping with problem pregnancies, please consider attending a training session and joining the growing group of clergy who make themselves available. Contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
KRCRC supports and publicizes the work of allied pro-choice organizations. Our newsletter, Voice for Choice, offers these groups a forum in which they can inform the public about their work, recruit members, and solicit donations and other kinds of support. KRCRC also frequently cooperates with other groups to organize demonstrations, inform the public about relevant issues, and support or oppose legislation.
The pro-choice allied groups that we support are:
A Fund, Inc., founded in 1993, raises money to pay
for abortions for women who cannot otherwise afford them.
Louisville Clinic Escorts accompany patients who seek care at the EMW Clinic through the crowds of anti-choice protesters who often threaten and intimidate them.
Kentucky Health Justice Network/Kentucky Support Network is a network of volunteers that provides many kinds of support to women who have chosen to terminate their pregnancies. These services include financial assistance, transportation, interpretation, and more. KHJN/KSN also holds workshops and educational events on reproductive justice and its implications for racial and gender relations.
Reproductive Rights for Kentucky PAC raises and funnels much-needed campaign support to those elected Kentucky federal and state officials who safeguard women’s rights and support candidates for office who oppose legislation that limits access to contraception and abortion.
Planned Parenthood Great Northwest, Hawai'i, Alaska, Indiana, Kentucky provides high-quality and compassionate health care; reduces unintended pregnancies and sexually transmitted infections through age-appropriate and accurate sexual health education; and advocates freedom of individual choice in all matters of sexual health and reproductive justice.
The Reproductive Freedom Project of the American Civil Liberties Union of Kentucky is dedicated to protecting and expanding reproductive rights for all Kentuckians through education, advocacy, and litigation.
