OUR MISSION

Prosecutors across the country have power to say NO to criminalizing pregnancy.

That’s why we must call on them to prioritize internal policies that are rooted in Reproductive Justice and resources that institute an anti-racist, anti-classist, community-based and holistic model of health care.
