About Us

Inroads: the International Network for the Reduction of Abortion Discrimination and Stigma is a global network of advocates, scholars, health providers, and donors interested in program design, research, and advocacy to address abortion stigma and its negative outcomes.

Our network aims to end abortion stigma and is rooted in the values of :

Community Care

We actively seek a world where abortions are considered normal and allowed to have the meaning and valence relevant to the person having that abortion; where people can access the abortions they need or want, with dignity and humanity. We believe support, exchange, and uplifting each other are integral to the work of ending stigma.

Equity

By beginning with the understanding and redistribution of power, we become a robust network, with representation of all voices. We center lived experiences of abortion stigma, we shift narratives of scarcity to abundance, and we challenge the institutionalisation of power. 

Authentic Engagement

Experience is expertise at inroads, and thus there are multiple ways to “make inroads” on abortion stigma. Members share, be, learn, listen, act, make decisions, and steer the direction of the network.

Fearless Passion

We are aflame with the conviction that a conscious, committed, and multifaceted strategy will pave the way for a world without abortion stigma. We will end abortion stigma, and we will do it together.
