Reproductive Rights, Health, Justice: A Camber Conversation

May 4, 2022US Health

Like many in the social impact space and across the country, we at Camber Collective have been anticipating, but are nonetheless shocked and outraged by, the likely end of Roe v. Wade. This presumed full scale attack and rollback of basic reproductive rights and freedom is unprecedented in our era—particularly as it disproportionately impacts historically and systemically marginalized people and communities already facing intersecting barriers and structural inequities. As a firm and as people, we fully support the rights of all people to determine if, when and how they become pregnant.

Camber has been serving clients and partners in the Reproductive Health, Rights and Justice space for the past decade. In this time, we’ve been fortunate enough to work with leading organizations in the sector, and as we confront the likely end of Roe v. Wade, we thought it pertinent to share about the work we’ve done in collaboration with these partners that is specifically focused on improving and expanding equitable access to abortion services, as well as share some opportunities for people to translate anger and frustration into action.
