Ipas is the leading international organization working to increase access to abortion and contraception globally. Recently, Ipas celebrated its 50th year anniversary by announcing plans to adopt a reproductive justice framework and focus the organization on truly building sustainable abortion ecosystems across the globe where people have the information they need to make decisions about reproductive health.
When the US Supreme Court’s prepared decision in Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization leaked in May 2022, the country was in shock. The constitutional right to abortion in the US was hanging on by a thread, and unfortunately, Ipas’ reproductive health and rights experts in countries all around the world knew first-hand the impact such a dangerous decision could have. Immediately, Feldman Strategies began partnering with Ipas to help shape the media narrative of how overturning Roe v. Wade could have an outsized influence globally. From local newspapers to international television hits, our team ensured Ipas’ expertise was heard far and wide.
In a post-Roe world, our team continues to help domestic and international media draw parallels between state bans on abortion, LGBTQ+ rights, and education and the emboldened anti-rights movement growing internationally. We ensure stories of the persistent fights to expand sexual and reproductive health and rights being led on-the-ground in countries like Kenya, Nairobi, and Ghana, and across Latin America, are captured and told.
