National Advocates for Pregnant Women

About National Advocates for Pregnant Women

National Advocates for Pregnant Women (NAPW) is a small nonprofit 501c(3) organization that works to secure the rights and human dignity of all women, particularly pregnant and parenting women and those who are most likely to be targeted for state control and punishment including low income women, women of color, and drug-using women. NAPW uses an integrated set of strategies that combines legal advocacy; local and national organizing; and public education. NAPW seeks to build bridges across diverse public health and social justice movements, and to connect local organizing and activism with national advocacy and policy work. NAPW has a commitment to advancing the civil and human rights of all people including transgender people. The organization is actively involved in ongoing court challenges to punitive reproductive health and drug policies and provides litigation support in cases across the country.

“The environment at NAPW was great. Everyone was extremely friendly and was very open to giving about advice about graduate programs and jobs. The director provided networking opportunities. We spent about two days learning about the organization in-depth and this gave us insight on how the organization was founded and how it functioned as a non-profit. We were also given opportunities to do independent work, and chose how and what we would like to do.”
