“Doug Jones’ historic victory in Alabama signals that candidates who pledge to advance reproductive health, rights and justice can run and win on their principles – even in more conservative jurisdictions. The people of Alabama came out in droves to make their voices heard and elect a candidate who stands up for women and their right to make their own decisions about their bodies – and against the degradations and bullying represented by Roy Moore.

“In 2018, the National Institute for Reproductive Health Action Fund will enthusiastically support local candidates who are committed to protecting and advancing reproductive freedom and standing up for the rights of women. Together, we will leave an enduring legacy that safeguards access to abortion and contraception, regardless of what happens in Washington, D.C.”


The NIRH Action Fund is a 501(c)4 that does non-partisan issue advocacy and electoral engagement to advance reproductive health, rights, and justice in states and cities across the country. Just as NIRH invests in localities and states, the NIRH Action Fund is interested in building political power at the local and state level to advance reproductive freedom.
