This semester, the Center is pleased to honor the North Carolina Central University chapter of Law Students for Reproductive Justice (LSRJ) with the Center for Reproductive Rights Student Policy and Advocacy Award.
The CRR Student Policy Advocacy Award recognizes policy advocacy by students within their schools and communities that advances the principle that reproductive rights are human rights which those in power must respect, protect, and fulfill. The award, a cash prize of $250, is given on an ad hoc basis to student groups that are doing the hard work of supporting and advancing policies that reinforce reproductive rights.
NCCU LSRJ was founded in 2014 and has shown dedication to the promotion of reproductive rights and social justice within the law school community and beyond. They’ve hosted programming on a range of reproductive justice issues including access to abortion, sex trafficking, and women’s health policy. Working with Ipas, NARAL, the Carolina Abortion Fund, and local abortion providers, NCCU LSRJ are passionate advocates contributing to the conversations around access to reproductive health care in North Carolina.
We at the Center for Reproductive Rights believe that reproductive rights policy advocacy, including the work happening on the NCCU campus, deserves to be recognized and encouraged. For these reasons, we commend the NCCU chapter of Law Students for Reproductive Justice and are pleased to present them with the CRR Student Policy Advocacy Award.
