Get to know us
The Jane Fund of Central Massachusetts is dedicated to funding and supporting abortion access in Central Massachusetts and beyond.
We believe abortion is a key part of comprehensive health care.
We envision a world in which there is reproductive justice. This means “the human right to maintain personal bodily autonomy, have children, not have children, and parent the children we have in safe and sustainable communities.”*
*Credit to Sister Song for this definition of reproductive justice, and to the Black women who have pioneered the concept of RJ itself.
The Jane Fund’s board is a group of dedicated volunteers and activists working to fund and support access to abortion in Central Massachusetts and beyond.
They lend their time and leadership to fielding calls for help, fundraising, training volunteers, thanking donors, collaborating with Planned Parenthood and other abortion providers, keeping up-to-date with the reproductive justice movement, and maintaining relationships with activists at other abortion funds and pro-choice organizations.
Our board members, collectively, possess over 100 years of experience promoting reproductive health access, including at least 65 years volunteering with the Jane Fund.
Beyond the Jane Fund, their roles include mother, grandmother, wife, husband, friend, “dog mom,” and “cat mom.” They describe themselves as an editor and writer, a public historian, a lawyer, an actor, a business owner, an educator, a digital media specialist, and an “avid napper.” They enjoy reading, being in nature, getting creative, and helping others.
