Greetings! This Sunday, we will take time to celebrate Mother’s Day – a day to honor our mothers and the maternal figures in our lives who have touched, supported, and helped us thrive and survive. As a working mother of two small children, I rely on my own mother to be there for my children when I travel and frequently work late into the evenings. Mothers like mine are at the core of the reproductive justice movement – they help keep our families strong and vibrant; keep us healthy, fed and free from harm; and are the leaders in our communities. I am grateful to my mother for everything she’s given me over the years and for her constant care and dedication to my young family.
This year, please consider honoring your mami, abuela, tia, madrina, or other special mother in your life with a tax-deductible donation in her honor to the National Latina Institute for Reproductive Health (NLIRH).
Last month, thirty-one of our activists from around the country gathered in Washington, D.C., many of them mothers, for our National Advocacy Weekend. These committed activists met with their members of Congress to demand that they protect vital family planning services and abortion care for all women. As mothers, we know that the ability to determine when and if we want to parent is critical to living a full and promising life. Your gift will allow us to keep up our phone calls, letter writing, and activists walking the halls of Congress. Our communities rely on affordable, safe and comprehensive reproductive health care. With your help, we can keep the pressure on our members of Congress.
As moms across the country struggle to do their best for their families, your generous donation will be a touching symbol of the love and respect you have for your mother.
Make your gift online today or mail your check to: National Latina Institute for Reproductive Health, Development Department, 50 Broad Street, Suite 1937, New York, NY 10004. And, to show that special mother in your life how much she means to you all year long, please consider enrolling in our automatic monthly-giving program.
Thank you in advance for your financial support, and Happy Mother’s Day to all madres! We could not sustain our critical work on behalf of reproductive health, dignity, and justice without you.
All donations made through our website are 100% secure.
If you would like to make a donation over the phone using your credit card, please call us at 212-422-2553.

NLIRH has been working tirelessly to protect the 14th Amendment, elevate the voices of immigrant women, and push back against both dehumanizing rhetoric and direct birthright citizenship attacks on Latina immigrant mothers and our families.
