For 12 years now, Groundswell Fund’s annual evaluation report of the Reproductive Justice movement has provided funders, grantmaking partners, donors, and the field with birds-eye level information on trends, challenges, and emerging issues.

Every year we take some time to assess the impact of our three capacity-building programs (Integrated Voter Engagement, Grassroots Organizing Institute, and Ecosystem Initiative); as well as the impact of our broader funding and work with grantee partners across the reproductive justice movement.

Our recently released 2019 Strategy, Action, and Impact: Groundswell Fund’s Evaluation of the Reproductive Justice Movement Report shows how our grantee partners are responding to today’s political reality through base-building strategies. 

This year’s report relies primarily on grantee surveys completed by 70 RJ organizations in 2019. In addition to documenting the grantees’ strategies, wins, lessons, and challenges, this report highlights trends across several years, including Groundswell’s role in helping to catalyze philanthropic giving to the RJ movement.
