Legal Voice

Legal Voice is a progressive feminist organization using the power of the law to make change in the Northwest. We use that power structure to dismantle sexism and oppression, specifically advocating for our region’s most marginalized communities: women of color, lesbians, transgender and gender-nonconforming people, immigrants, people with disabilities, low-income women, and others affected by gender oppression and injustice.

In 2012, NIRH worked with Legal Voice to pass a city council resolution in Seattle opposing the Hyde Amendment and other restrictions on abortion coverage, linking local work to state advocacy efforts to pass the Washington state Reproductive Parity Act to ensure insurance coverage for abortion.
