Circling around strong people during vulnerable times.
Who We Are
We began our practice as queer Latin@s, of diverse heritage, from the Southwest, to attend to the deep wounds in the maternity care system, among incarcerated folks and those who have experienced intimate violence. We focus on presently and historically marginalized groups, groups no one else is helping, & groups that share an intersectional reproductive justice analysis.
What We Do
Elephant Circle works on a broad range of issues related to birth and reproductive justice. We love developing prototypes & innovative ways of addressing reproductive justice that can expand and grow through adoption by other organizations or shifts in policy. Our work takes place through community organizing, training, research, outreach, and provision of legal services.
Ways to Engage
Check our Events Page for our latest happenings or refer to our Circle Blog for new ideas or points of engagement.

“I could tell them my feelings about things along the way, and was supported and guided to find my own voice.”
