LSRJ Applauds Alumna and Former Chapter Leader Sandra Fluke

PRESS RELEASE

February 5, 2014
Law Students for Reproductive Justice applauds alumna Sandra Fluke in her run for California Senate District 26.
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Oakland, CA – Law Students for Reproductive Justice (LSRJ) is thrilled with the announcement today from our alumna Sandra Fluke that she will be running for California Senate District 26. 

As a student at Georgetown University Law Center, Sandra deftly lead the LSRJ chapter in challenging the school’s contraceptive coverage policy, and she continues to do what we encourage all of our members and leaders to do - use the law to help create real, lasting change,” said Sabrina Andrus, Executive Director of Law Students for Reproductive Justice.

LSRJ trains and amplifies the voices of student leaders and new lawyers throughout the country, like Ms. Fluke, preparing the next generation of lawyers, judges, and elected officials to stand up for the reproductive rights of all people – from the margins to the mainstream. LSRJ members are not only poised to influence law, policy, and public opinion in the future, they are already making an impact in the present.

LSRJ Honored as High-impact Nonprofit

We are excited to share that LSRJ has been identified by experts as a top nonprofit working in the field of reproductive health, rights, and justice! Philanthropedia, a division of GuideStar, spoke with 134 experts to rank the top 25 high-impact non-profits in the national reproductive health, rights, and justice field, and we are honored to have been ranked 15th. In describing LSRJ, non-profit professionals said, ”Their staff and board leadership has been superb for years. They are a very strategic organization and have carved out their own niche in the movement...LSRJ has reached thousands and thousands of law school graduates from 100 campuses throughout the country. Everywhere I go, I meet LSRJ alums who are active in the field as scholars, litigators, pro bono counsel, donors, and board members. Plus, LSRJ’s fellowship and internship programs have brought legal research and writing skills directly to dozens of reproductive organizations, most of which don’t have staff with legal training, increasing their policy advocacy capacity.”
