The Power to Win
February 2, 2012
Grantee News From Groundswell Fund
On behalf of the Groundswell Fund’s board and staff, it is my pleasure to share our new publication: Growing a Movement with the Power to Win: Stories from the Frontlines of Reproductive Justice.
Told through snapshots of grantee victories at the local, state and federal level, this report explores why the reproductive justice movement is able to win policy change and bring a gender lens to nearly every major social justice movement in the US. It also looks at the power of community organizing and cross-issue alliance building as winning strategies.
At this moment in US history, when human rights are under increasing attack, these victories are especially important. They are proof that progressive values can transcend the politics of fear and repression.
Please feel free to share this publication with your colleagues, and of course, please share your feedback and ideas with us.
