Kentucky Health Justice Network

Mission: 

KHJN supports Kentuckians towards achieving autonomy in our lives and justice for our communities.We advocate, educate, provide direct services, and support positive policy development in local, regional and state realms. Our vision is one where Kentucky communities and individuals have power, access, and resources to be healthy and have agency over our lives. Our work is guided by the reproductive justice framework. We believe reproductive rights are human rights, and that all people should be able to decide if, when, and how to parent.
