Indigenous Women’s Health and Reproductive Justice Program

TWU’s Indigenous Women’s Health and Justice Program welcomes families to engage in their health and wellbeing by revitalizing and reclaiming traditional practices and ways of knowing to strengthen connection and belonging for All communities.

As a Native Woman led community-based organization, TWU is directly involved in addressing the challenges of reproductive health and justice for Indigenous women. We believe that every woman has the right to a birthing experience that promotes autonomy, dignity, respect, and empowerment for mother, child, and family.

The Indigenous Women’s Health Program at Tewa Women United utilizes an intersectional approach to Reproductive Justice. Blending our organizational program areas we braid together issue areas of gender justice, birth justice, environmental justice, economic justice, healthy sexuality and body sovereignty, advocacy and healing for survivors of sexual violence, to form a comprehensive approach to building beloved communities and ending violence against women, girls, and Mother Earth.
