• Webinar: Pregnancy and Drug Use in the Central Valley: Hear From the Experts

    Drug use and pregnancy are sensitive subjects that are often addressed without the opportunity to hear from experts. Please watch our webinar featuring medical experts who discuss evidence-based research on drug use, addiction, and pregnancy. In addition, local legal and community advocates offer insight into the current responses to drug use and pregnancy in the Central Valley and approaches that will advance maternal, fetal, and child health.

NAPW DEFENDS AND ADVOCATES FOR THE RIGHTS, health, and dignity of pregnant and parenting women


NAPW combines legal advocacy, public education and organizing to achieve a country in which no one is arrested, shamed, or denied constitutional or human rights because they have the capacity for pregnancy, are pregnant, or because of any outcome of their pregnancies — including births, miscarriages, stillbirths and abortions. NAPW is committed to advancing the equal rights and personhood of all pregnant people including those most likely to be targeted for arrest, detention, and blame — low income women, women of color, and drug-using women.




These issues are in fact interconnected and all of NAPW’s work reflects this.
