Surge is a non-profit, reproductive justice collaborative working to mobilize communities of color and other marginalized communities through representation, education, community engagement and policy advocacy.
Surge is working in Reproductive Justice (RJ), an approach to health equity and reproductive health that uses a holistic lens to look at the whole person, family, and community for opportunities for empowerment. The RJ approach brings together diverse communities and perspectives to reach solutions that are led by the communities most affected.
Our current priorities are three key issues that we believe are critical to advancing reproductive justice in our region:
- Access to health care, including reproductive health services, for immigrants.
- Birthing and reproductive justice for imprisoned women
- Progressive sex education that ensures access to culturally meaningful, accessible and comprehensive information.

Surge stands with communities whose bodies, lives, and families have been subject to state and social control. We advance racial and reproductive justice through community engagement, education, and policy advocacy by mobilizing communities.
We envision a world where all communities are free from reproductive oppression, racism, and violence.
