Whole Woman’s Health at the NLIRH 20th Anniversary Gala!

Last night Whole Woman’s Health attended the National Latina Institute for Reproductive Health’s 20th Anniversary Gala in Washington DC! We have always been a huge fan of the work they do mobilizing and elevating the Latina community across the U.S., and have had the pleasure of working with them in the past on events like the Women’s Human Rights Hearing for Nuestro Texas in March.

The gala was fabulous! We were surrounded by so many of the reproductive justice movement’s shining lights and watched as many of our SHEroes were honored for and spoke about the importance of this work, including Dolores Huerta, the Honorable Lucy Flores from Nevada, and NLIRH Executive Director Jessica Gonzalez-Rojas!

Scroll down for more photos and quotes from the event!

“Reproductive justice is a struggle for dignity.”

“Every woman has the right to determine how many children she has for herself.”

“We really have to grow our movement. We know that state after state are passing laws. We really have got to be organizers.”

-Dolores Huerta, President, The Dolores Huerta Foundation
