(New York, NY; Washington, DC) May 4, 2022 - Today, Amalgamated Foundation announces a bold response to recent and ongoing attacks on reproductive rights with the launch of the Critical Reproductive Access Fund.
The Critical Reproductive Access Fund (CRAF) will deploy and direct new resources to organizations responding to the abortion access crisis. The CRAF is a grassroots fundraising effort led by Amalgamated Bank employees, to be strategically guided by field partners, and open to donors who are individuals, institutions, corporations, and other allies looking to financially support reproductive health providers and seekers, as well as reproductive justice advocates. This fund will support organizations providing direct funds to people seeking abortion services - including but not limited to - cost for procedures, travel costs, meals, dependent care and more.
The CRAF is hosted in partnership with Amalgamated Bank, which announced new internal Human Resource guidelines (link to Bank’s Press Release) to support employees and their dependents in need of reproductive healthcare.
““It’s time for people who care about reproductive rights and abortion access to get CRAFty. We hope this fund contributes to a groundswell of efforts in this moment to ensure access to these service" said Anna Fink, Executive Director at Amalgamated Foundation.
