The June 2022 decision by the U.S. Supreme Court in Dobbs v. Jackson Women's Health Organization sent shock waves through the nation and revoked reproductive health access to millions of people across America.
TBF’s Our New Pathway has at its heart a deep commitment to equity, which includes gender equity. As we continue to expand our existing commitment to maternal health, it will be important to equip ourselves for the long term.
To this end, the Boston Foundation is establishing and seeding the Fund for Reproductive Health. This fund will support local organizations with general operating support and technical assistance as they prepare for the future ramifications of the Supreme Court decision. This includes ensuring access to reproductive rights for Massachusetts residents and those who travel here to obtain services they cannot access in their own state, as well as supporting legal defense expenses for those facing unjust prosecution. The funds will be used over the next two years to respond to the evolving needs of women and others affected by this decision, as well as to support the organizations that are scrambling to serve them.
