CHANGE is U.S.-based non-profit organization that advances gender equality and human rights for women and girls and others who face stigma and discrimination by advancing sexual and reproductive health and rights (SRHR) for all. We do this by elevating the voices of those impacted by U.S. foreign policy in our research, advocacy, partnerships, and strategic communications.
CHANGE’s offices are in Washington, D.C., the seat of the U.S. federal government, where the executive, legislative and judicial branches of government are located. CHANGE is intentionally situated in close proximity to those in the U.S. government who are charged with making decisions about laws, policies, and funding that impact the SRHR of people in countries that receive U.S. foreign assistance.
It is important for us to recognize the ongoing injustices faced by American Indians and others because of white supremacy and neocolonialism. CHANGE acknowledges that our headquarters in Washington D.C. is located on the traditional land of the Anacostan People of the Piscataway Tribe.
As an organization located in the United States, CHANGE recognizes its disproportionate power and privilege in the world. CHANGE is committed to advancing racial equity, diversity, and inclusion in its operations and programs and seeks to shed the legacy of oppression in the United States and around the world.
