URGE envisions a liberated world where we can live with justice, love freely, express our gender and sexuality, and define and create families of our choosing. To achieve our vision of liberation, URGE builds power and sustains a young people’s movement for reproductive justice by centering the leadership of young people of color who are women, queer, trans, nonbinary, and people of low-income.

In June 2022, URGE was awarded $10,000 to mobilize young BIPOC voters through a rural mail campaign and rides to the polls to defeat the ballot initiative in Kansas.

The Kansas vote was a powerful rebuke and a promise of the mounting resistance. Let the anti-abortion politicians know: the injustices and indignities they impose on us will not stand. Not in the nation young people are building.
