Our network and movement partners are responding to urgent and ongoing crises throughout the South and the nation. The impacts of the climate crisis threaten communities, with fires still raging in the west and devastating storms bringing damaging winds, flooding, and ongoing power outages. At the same time, the draconian abortion ban that took effect in Texas this week and the ongoing COIVD crisis point to the ways our collective wellbeing is threatened. These intersecting challenges will not be solved in isolation. 

This resource list is a growing list of philanthropic and movement organizations working to mobilize resources to those impacted by Hurricane Ida as well as efforts to respond to the Texas abortion ban. This list will be updated as more information becomes available. 

Please contact Luis Rey Ramirez at [email protected] with questions or to share additional resources to be included on this page.

Resources to Support Response to the Abortion Ban Crisis

  • The Emergent Fund and the Groundswell Fund compiled a living list of groups working to respond to abortion bans in Texas and in other states where recent legislation has restricted access to care. You can find the full list here
  • Groundswell’s Rapid Response Fund provides fast funding to grassroots organizations led by women of color, trans people of color, and low-income women and trans people in critical, but unexpected, fights to protect and advance reproductive and social justice. The Black Trans Fund at the Groundswell Fund is the first national fund in the country dedicated to uplifting and resourcing Black trans social justice leaders.
  • National Network of Abortion Funds builds power with members to remove financial and logistical barriers to abortion access and organizes at the intersections of racial, economic, and reproductive justice.
  • The Lilith Fund is the oldest abortion fund in Texas, serving the central and southern regions of our state with direct financial assistance for abortions.
