Penn If/When/How engages in pro bono projects, community building, activism, advocacy and education aimed at ensuring access to reproductive healthcare for all individuals. We provide direct legal service to clients in the form of judicial bypass counseling and clinic escorting. We also provide legal research and advocacy support to organizations and community partners throughout the country who are fighting to advance reproductive health, rights, and justice. Our work is greatly informed and influenced by the work of advocates of color in the reproductive justice movement, who advocate for “the human right to maintain personal bodily autonomy, have children, not have children, and parent the children we have in safe and sustainable communities.
