Reproductive Justice Leadership Institute


NAPAWF’s Reproductive Justice Leadership Institute (RJLI) is a one-year immersion programs, offered in both Atlanta, GA, New York City, and soon Chicago, IL, that prepares young Asian American and Pacific Islander and Asian Pacific Islander women, trans, and gender nonconforming people to advocate for their communities. The goal of RJLI is to develop strong leaders who can elevate their lived experiences to change public policies that dictate the choices available to women, trans, and gender non conforming people.
