The Journal of Reproductive Justice
www.journalofreproductivejustice.org

The Journal of Reproductive Justice (JoRJ) is a new media non-profit that is focused on conducting research, providing education and linked resources, and visual materials to improve daily quality of life through social justice. Bridging the arts, sciences, and technology, our aim is to increase access to information and services that are vital for mental and physical health, particularly in historically vulnerable populations. Often, societal barriers lead to what are called health disparities, which are preventable circumstances that are caused by and/or contribute to the oppression of minority populations. Systemic power, or what is upheld as the majority ideal, tends to be damaging and exclusive of the variety of what it means to exist as a valid being.

Our projects, goals, and mission work together to remove the rule of these majority ideals and replace it with an evidenced based approach to reducing health disparities and offering support to all persons.
