Indigenous reproductive health series explores challenges and solutions

When it comes to Indigenous reproductive health in Canada, there are stories of survival and thrival. Indigenous women and two-spirit Peoples in particular have faced extreme barriers to healthcare — from violence and traumas in Indian Hospitals and residential schools causing mistrust and racism to lack of culturally-appropriate support and services.

Despite the challenges, people have continuously fought for their families, their lives and their reproductive rights. This closer dive into access to care and stories of resurgence will run throughout the month of November, 2020, closing off with an online event with partners, supporters and community, to discuss more fully our findings and impact.

We want answers. Will you pitch in so we can continue to hold colonial institutions accountable?
