Planned Parenthood Generation at SUNY Albany is a group of student activists fighting for reproductive justice. In our fight for reproductive justice, we work within the Capital District, partner with other groups, and coordinate with national efforts to ensure access to reproductive health services.
No matter what, we will fight for progress. We will not let the hard-won battles of those before us be erased. But in moving forward, this is a fight for and with all people. Fighting for the most vulnerable among us means recognizing all the other forms of oppression that intersect with reproductive rights. SisterSong has defined Reproductive Justice as “the human right to have children, not have children, and parent the children we have in safe and healthy environments,” including “the human right to bodily autonomy from any form to reproductive oppression.” Working within that framework, we are inspired to not only continue our work, but to fight harder than ever.
From the well of pain that we felt after the election, we will draw strength. This fight will be long and difficult. But we do it because we know that true justice cannot exist without reproductive justice.
Together, we know a lot. Together, we are strong. Together, we will prevail. We invite you to join us.
