Radical Generosity is the concept that the suffering of others should be as intolerable as our own suffering. On Tuesday, November 30th we’re celebrating #GivingTuesday. On this one day, non-profits all over the world are given a spotlight for striving to create a better world for us all. At Desert Star Institute for Family Planning, Inc, we’re working toward a world where access to the full range of just, dignified, and exceptional reproductive health care is available to people who can become pregnant regardless of circumstance or zip code and is provided by compassionate health care professionals who also advocate for reproductive health and justice in their communities. To move toward that vision, we need your help. We’re raising awareness and funds for our programs this #GivingTuesday.

The Institute operates three scopes of work – the Next Generation of Abortion Providers Program, the IUD Access Program, and Community Education and Engagement (the Doula Access Program is housed here).

We are now in an alarmingly hostile climate where safe, equitable access to abortion is not a reality for many pregnant people trying access care across the country. The Institute fulfills an important component of abortion access by providing hands-on training of the next generation of abortion providers. A requisite of practicing autonomy over our reproductive lives is access to information and resources. The IUD Access Program reduces the cost of an IUD from $1,100 to $150 for an uninsured person and the Doula Access Program, a collaboration with the Rooted Doula Collective, addresses perinatal health disparities by offering financial assistance for doula services to Black pregnant and postpartum families in Arizona.
