If/When/How: Lawyering for Reproductive Justice

Mission: 

If/When/How is a national network of law students and legal professionals who work together because reproductive justice doesn’t just happen. We believe that achieving reproductive justice will take thoughtful action and strategic activism: acknowledging the intersection of identities, collaborating across disciplines, and working toward a critical transformation of the current legal system. Because ensuring that all people have the right to decide if/when/how to create families depends entirely on if, when, and how hard we fight.

Our legal system should support and advance reproductive justice for all. But all too often, it functions as yet another vehicle of reproductive oppression – we exist to change that.
