Puffin Prize for Creative Citizenship awarded to the National Network of Abortion Funds
March 2, 2022
Type Media Center & The Puffin Foundation are pleased to announce the recipient of the 2021 Puffin Prize for Creative Citizenship is the National Network for Abortion Funds (NNAF).
The NNAF is a network of over 90 community organizations that works with members to break down logistical and economic barriers to abortion.
“We are honored to be recognized by the Puffin Foundation and Type Media Center, whose commitment to social justice aligns deeply with the mission and vision of the National Network of Abortion Funds. On the cusp of the potential dismantling of Roe v. Wade, there has never been a more pressing time to uplift abortion funds. We are grateful to be in partnership in the ongoing fight for reproductive health, rights, and justice.”
-Debasri Ghosh, Managing Director of the fund
“Across the country the right to an abortion is under attack with BIPOC and those of low income bearing the brunt of draconian legal restrictions designed to deny safe and legal access. While there seems to be no shortage of self-serving politicians pushing these measures across the country, we are fortunate to also have organizational champions like NNAP. The NNAP’s work to fight for reproductive health and justice and to assist those seeking to access their reproductive rights is why we are recognizing their work today with the Puffin Prize for Creative Citizenship.”
-Neal Rosenstein, President of the Puffin Foundation
“The NNAF works on the frontlines of the reproductive justice movement to ensure abortion access for those in most need today.
-Taya McCormick-Grobow, Type Media Center Executive Director and CEO
