The Chicago Abortion Fund (CAF) provides financial, logistical, and emotional support to people seeking abortion care in Chicago, in Illinois, and the Midwest.
NIRH has worked with CAF for many years make access to abortion a reality in Chicago and the surrounding area.
In 2022, NIRH is partnering with CAF to identify and implement local policies that will expand access for Cook County residents and those traveling to Cook County to receive care. While recent legislative victories in Illinois have resulted in expanded access to reproductive health care, including abortion, policy gaps still leave abortion care out of reach for many individuals. With the right to an abortion under direct threat nationwide, we’re working to ensure that Cook County is a place where access is a reality for anyone who would otherwise face financial or logistical barriers to abortion care. This project is a collaboration with All* Above All.
