Advocates for Youth

Mission: 

Advocates for Youth champions efforts to help young people make informed and responsible decisions about their reproductive and sexual health. We work with hundreds of youth activists around the nation and in the Global South to ensure young people's reproductive health and protect their rights. In our work on the 1 in 3 Campaign, we strive to elevate abortion stories in order to change a silencing and stigmatizing culture around abortion, to one that centers real people's experiences with needing abortion care.
