RJ Resistance to Texas’ SB8 Abortion Ban
Catalyst Fund Grantees on the Frontlines of Protecting Abortion Access
The Catalyst Fund supports several grassroots organizations and POC-led abortion funds on the frontlines in Texas (see GSF Scotus Statement) after the passage of SB 8—a law that bans abortion after 6 weeks and puts a $10,000 minimum bounty on the heads of anyone deemed to be helping someone access abortion care.
ARC-Southeast (Southeast region), National Network of Abortion Funds, The West Fund (El Paso, TX), ACCESS Reproductive Justice (California), and The Afiya Center (Dallas, TX) are grantees that organize to protect access to abortion including running abortion funds in an increasingly anti-abortion climate.
As we prepare for a post-Roe reality, abortion funding will remain a core strategy of RJ organizations as they work to eliminate the policies and systemic barriers that make abortion funds necessary.
Similarly, we saw mutual aid and healing justice become a core part of strengthening other RJ organizations’ base-building and leadership development programs.
