Obstetricians for Reproductive Justice


Our Mission

We are a multicultural OBGYN-led organization that works to share the stories of the real-time harm happening to patients and providers in post-Roe America. Our goal is to go to communities where our presence is needed to bring financial and logistical support as well as education, and by amplifying stories in traditional and social media keeping reproductive justice in the forefront. We are nimble, bold, and in positions of power as reproductive health experts in protected states – and we are ready to act.

Amplifying stories of patients who have been harmed by these bans, with a focus on communities that are most vulnerable.

Amplifying stories of providers who are in hostile or sanctuary states who are being targeted or working an untenable amount.


Creating opportunities for doctor-led activism that hasn’t been done in this way before.

Engaging with communities who need education, resources, and funding – with an intentional focus on those traditionally ignored and thus most harmed.


Partnering with current and future abortion providers to ensure this critical provision of healthcare does not disappear because of limitations on medical training via helping with funds for training and novel ways to expand access.

We will not go backwards!

Why did you create ORJ?

We are so thankful for the many grassroot organizations that have long been in this fight, especially those centering reproductive justice in their communities and not necessarily from within the medical field. We created ORJ to encourage the medical community to work with and center these ideals more rapidly, given this rapidly changing reproductive health and policy landscape. We are specifically an OBGYN-led organization that aims to push the envelope with media messaging, storytelling, and advocacy work in more bold, unique ways that the traditional medical system has long shied away from. In doing this, we are actively partnering with the organizations that created this essential work, and encouraging broader acceptance of this framework.

Are you a 501(c)(3)?

Yes, which means all donations are tax-deductible as permitted by law. We are fiscally sponsored by Build Up, Inc., a 501(c)(3). We chose to partner with Build Up, Inc. as our fiscal sponsor because they are the only fiscal sponsor founded by a woman of color and they have a focus on public health, criminal justice, education, women’s rights, fiscal governance and transparency, economic advancement, equality, democracy, and human rights. Basically, everything we strongly believe in and want to be associated with!

What does my donation go to?

Saving the country (jk…or not). Funds will go directly to organizational support, community support (creating educational materials, helping local groups or advocacy leaders fund program needs, and other practical support needs that vary based on community needs), production costs (to tell the essential post-Roe harm stories unraveling across the country) legal, security, and travel costs. You can see more about what that looks like here.

Are you making money off of this work?

This is entirely volunteer-based and we are actively spending our own money to get ORJ off the ground.
