Tri-Valley Haven Speaks Out on Supreme Court Overturning Roe v. Wade
As an organization dedicated to empowering women and ending domestic and sexual violence for all, Tri-Valley Haven is outraged that the supreme court, state legislatures and male-dominated society are wielding control over the reproductive health care of women and anyone able to give birth.
This ruling and the subsequent abortion bans will impact people’s economic prospects, their physical and mental health, and their entire lives. Sadly, we know many of these effects will disproportionately fall on those who are already marginalized—particularly women of color and nonbinary and transgender people. Black women are already significantly more likely than white women to experience an unintended pregnancy, due to disparities in the economy and the health-care system, amongst other factors.
All people deserve the right to self-determination and personhood. Tri-Valley Haven stands in solidarity with all women: lesbian, straight, cisgender and transwomen. The Haven will continue to support survivors of domestic violence, sexual assault and poverty. We will continue assist those without resources. We will continue to march, speak-out, LISTEN and do everything in our power to advance equity. We won’t give up, ever.
The Haven cannot and does not do this work alone. We sincerely thank our incredible clients, supporters, volunteers, and staff. We know it has been a harrowing week. We stand with you. We invite those of you new to Tri-Valley Haven to join us. Follow us on social media, join our e-newsletter list, sign up to volunteer, join our dedicated staff or donate online.
Together we can build a community free from domestic violence, sexual assault and poverty.
