WV Free

As West Virginia’s leading reproductive health, rights and justice organization, our vision is centered in our respect for people’s lives with the belief that access to reproductive health care and education is a fundamental human right, essential for equality, health and dignity of all people. We believe in the human right to bodily integrity, reproductive autonomy and the ability to parent children in healthy and safe environments. We understand our work to be part of a larger social justice/reproductive justice movement to ensure the rights of all families. We canvass and build the power of young people, women and people of color to vote, educating them on reproductive health issues. We have renewed our commitment to work for racial justice through partnerships and alliance building. We are deeply committed to working in coalition and place a high value on nurturing authentic relationships. We understand intersectionality to be the strength of social justice movement building.

Mission: 

WV FREE envisions the elevation and empowerment of all West Virginians through the promotion of dignity and autonomy of women and families. WV FREE builds stronger communities by advocating for reproductive health, rights and justice, using an intersectional approach.
