We help Southerners and their families navigate the pathways to access safe, compassionate, and affordable reproductive care by providing financial and logistical support and building power in our communities through advocacy, education, and leadership development.
We envision a world where all Southerners have full access to care and support around their reproductive health decisions without biases or barriers.
We believe that every individual deserves an opportunity to secure a sustainable and non-oppressive life regardless of any real or socially-constructed characteristics that may traditionally limit one from doing so. Likewise, we believe that every individual deserves the right to make informed decisions about their lives and chosen families. Therefore, in an effort to promote equality for individuals in the South who may not be equipped with the necessary tools to access reproductive care, we are committed to helping those individuals by providing assistance and creating awareness in Reproductive Justice and Human Rights in the South.
ARC - Southeast strives to:
Eliminate the economic barriers limiting one’s access to reproductive care by providing financial assistance to those who meet the organizational guidelines for funding;
Initiate and encourage community involvement in the dialogue for reproductive justice in the South by facilitating intersectional exchange of ideas among communities;
Advance equal rights in reproductive decision-making through public advocacy;
Increase physical access to health care professionals and reproductive care by maintaining positive relationships with other funds and reproductive justice organizations in the South.
