here4HER - Reproductive Health Beyond Borders
Please join us for the launch of here4HER, a new initiative spearheaded by Human Rights Program student Charlie Le Grice, dedicated to supporting the most underserved even among underserved women. here4HER is re-igniting conversations about critical women's issues that demand a space in the center of human rights discourse, by campaigning for human rights organizations committed to serving these women and girls. For this reason, the first here4HER campaign is launching with Solidarity Engineering.
Solidarity Engineering is a women-founded, women-led humanitarian aid organization currently based along the U.S.-Mexico border. Its mission is to provide community driven, public health based engineering to people in crisis. Building shelters and W.A.S.H. facilities, distributing basic needs supplies and providing health education they are a dedicated team of human rights defenders.
here4HER is honored to partner with Roosevelt House in bringing together a dynamic panel of field experts to address the challenges faced by thousands of migrant women and girls, who lack access to adequate reproductive health care. We also welcome Kattia Martinez who will be sharing her own experience, living in the migrant camps of Reynosa and making the journey from the border to NYC, where she now advocates for the rights of migrant women.
