The Reproductive Justice Fellowship Program (RJFP) is a policy-focused fellowship designed to create entry points into the reproductive health, rights, and justice fields and to enhance legal and advocacy capacity at organizations working to advance reproductive justice for all people. Reproductive Justice (RJ) Fellows gain hands-on policy advocacy experience and work on cutting edge reproductive health, rights, justice issues, particularly as they affect people of color and other marginalized communities. Placement organizations benefit because Fellows bring legal knowhow and an intersectional approach to legal and policy advocacy.
RJ Fellows are paid a salary and placed with organizations across the country for a year-long program that includes mentoring, professional development, skills-based training, and networking opportunities. Since its inception in 2010, the RJFP has launched the careers of nearly one hundred new lawyers at a score of allied organizations through Federal, State, and HIV Fellowships. If/When/How is proud to partner with the Women and the Law Program at American University Washington College of Law, which provides the academic home for the RJFP.
