We’re advancing reproductive freedom for all …in cities and states across the country

In Remembrance of our fearless leader

Andrea Miller (1967 – 2023)

The National Institute for Reproductive Health (NIRH) and its Action Fund (NIRH AF) are mourning the sudden passing of its president, Andrea Miller. Miller served at the helm of NIRH and NIRH AF for 12 years, establishing a stronghold in nationwide advocacy campaigns that focus on expansive and proactive reproductive freedom policies at the state and local levels.

Miller will be remembered for her deep commitment to equity and justice values, which continues to be core to NIRH’s mission. Her untimely passing came amidst the organization’s post-Roe programming including ongoing work dedicated to challenging the movement-wide status quo on abortion policies — pushing for expansive thinking around abortion access at all points in pregnancy. There was never a thought too bold nor was there an idea impossible to achieve throughout Miller’s lifelong work to advance equitable and just reproductive freedom policies in communities across the country.

We’ve led the charge to advance proactive policy at the state and local level – and secured scores of new policies to expand access to abortion and contraception and promote health equity.


With the legal foundation for abortion access destroyed and growing disparities in reproductive health care, we can’t cede an inch. NIRH is fighting to pass laws in cities and states to cement just and equitable access to all forms of reproductive health care, including abortion.

Proactive Policy

Creating National Change from the Ground Up

On July 1st, 2023, the National Institute for Reproductive Health (NIRH) announced a 17-state (AZ, CA, CO, FL, GA, MI, MN, MO, MT, NJ, NM, NY, NC, OH, PA, TX, VA) reproductive freedom initiative happening in year two of a post-Roe reality. These states reflect diverse political environments and degrees of access to reproductive health care, but all represent places where NIRH and our partners see unique opportunities to forge meaningful abortion access, address maternal mortality, and mitigate the harm people continue to experience when abortion is banned in their state. From New Jersey and New York to Arizona and Georgia, NIRH’s 17-state initiative will partner with advocates on the ground to advance bold policies that push the boundaries of all levels of government.

Coming soon: details about each partner and the work we’re doing together to ensure access to reproductive health care, including abortion, is just and equitable for all.
