Surge Reproductive Justice works to end reproductive oppression for all people.
Our work intentionally centers Black women, women of color, and queer and trans people of color for a movement that rises from the bottom up.
Doulas For All
Doulas For All is a Queer, Trans, Black, Indigenous and People of Color (QTBIPOC) led coalition organizing toward Medicaid reimbursements for birth doulas. During the 2022 Washington State legislative session, the coalition wrote, lobbied, and passed ESHB 1881 - a bill to establish birth doulas as a profession in Washington state, making the reimbursements possible.
Our Words Build Power
Our Words Build Power is a community-centered research and organizing process around the impacts on QTBIPOC health and wellness, focused specifically on our communities narratives of resistance to inform future campaigns and statewide advocacy.

This campaign is an opportunity for Black people to build and strategize as for holistic solutions to supporting our birthing and pregnant people, their families, and the Black birth workers who support them.
The Decriminalize Washington policy table is a partnership between QTBIPOC-led organizations comprised of and/or serving sex workers and Surge Reproductive Justice.
