The National Latina Institute for Reproductive Health is proud to announce that we have been selected as the 2007 recipient of the Jessie Smith Noyes Foundation Award!
“Jessie Smith Noyes was an advocate for women and girls in the early 1900s with the YWCA of Brooklyn. She would be proud to see the Foundation honor an important organization like the National Latina Institute for Reproductive Health, which works across the nation to improve the lives of women and their families,” said Victor DeLuca, President of the Noyes Foundation.
The Noyes Award was established to recognize and support organizations working to advance social justice. We are the 22nd recipient and only the 6th reproductive health and justice organization to receive this prestigious award. With this award, we will continue to influence policy, mobilize our constituency and ensure that Latina leadership and perspective is front and center in the reproductive justice movement. Many great and exciting changes await us in 2008, so stay tuned!
