"The mission of the SisterSong Women of Color Reproductive Health Collective is to strengthen and amplify the collective voices of Indigenous women and women of color so that we may secure our human rights, and thus achieve reproductive justice. We fight equally for the right to bear -- or not to bear -- a child, along with the subsequent and necessary enabling conditions to realize these rights."
