The traumatic separation of families at the border was a blatant attack on immigrants seeking a better life, and now the terrifying attacks continue. A proposed regulation from the #Trump administration would punish immigrants for accessing basic needs programs like Medicaid, food stamps, and housing assistance. Join us in fighting back! You can do something TODAY to #ProtectFamilies. Your comments are the one way to stop this.
🚨Public comments are now open! Find out how to fight back against this cruel attack. 🚨

October 3rd marks the anniversary of the day Rosie Jimenez died.
Rosie Jimenez was the first woman who died from an unsafe abortion after the Hyde Amendment was passed. She was 27 years old, a single mom, and a student trying to become a teacher. Rosie lived in McAllen, TX in 1977 when she was pregnant and wanted an abortion.
Because Medicaid no longer covered the healthcare she needed, Rosie couldn’t afford to go to an OB-GYN. Instead, she was forced to get an unsafe abortion from a non-medical practitioner near her. Within hours, Rosie was bleeding, cramping, and running a fever. She spent the last week of her life in the hospital with septic shock. This is what happens when abortion becomes inaccessible.

POLICY UPDATE: We are thrilled to announce our sponsored bill AB 2289 (Weber), was signed by Governor Brown yesterday!

AB 2289 protects young parents' right to bond with their children and continue with their education. Research shows that children who bond with their parents have healthier outcomes. We know that when young parents and their children thrive so do our entire communities.

At CLRJ we believe young parents are part of the fabric of our communities and that their journeys alongside their children should be supported. Thank you Assemblymember Shirley Weber for continuing to be a champion for our California youth.

Our Director of Research is on Capitol Hill with partners from IBS Reproductive Health, @bwwla, and Chapman University to talk to legislators about why we need truly accessible contraceptive options that work for each of us, including an over-the-counter birth control pill.

People should have the options they need when deciding or not to expand their family and what birth control method works for them!

Our third honoree this year is Gudalupe Rosales!

Guadalupe Rosales is an artist and archivist based in Los Angeles. She holds an MFA from The School of The Art Institute Of Chicago. Rosales is the founder of Veteranas and Rucas and Map Pointz, both digital archives found on Instagram. She has exhibited at The Vincent Price Art Museum (Los Angeles CA), Bemis Art Center (Omaha Nebraska), MOCA Miami and Commonwealth & Council (Los Angeles CA). She has lectured at various institutions such as UCLA, The Getty, The New Museum, New York University, MOCA and The Graduate Center in New York.  In 2016, Rosales took over The New Yorker’s social media for a week and was one of the top rated takeovers of the year. Her role as Artist in Residence taking over LACMA’s Instagram feed was featured in the LA Times, Artsy and Artforum. Rosales has an ongoing project developing an archive of photographs, objects and ephemera related to the 90’s Los Angeles Latinx party crew scene and Chicanx youth culture. By preserving artifacts and memorabilia, Rosales' work deconstructs and reframes marginalized histories, offering platforms of conversation and agency of self-representation.
