Last year marked the 30th anniversary of Medical Students for Choice. Over three decades, our organization has grown to represent more than 10,000 student-advocates across 287 chapters in 29 countries.
As we celebrated this milestone, we reflected upon our evolving organizational purpose and aspirations for the future. With input from our global community, the MSFC Board of Directors spent the last year working to refresh our mission statement. We are excited to announce our revised mission statement: “to support future abortion care providers and advocate for reproductive justice globally.”
This statement better reflects that our organization’s focus includes but is not limited to abortion, in line with our increasing focus on reproductive justice. Moreover, it captures our commitment to fostering a culture of diversity, equity, and inclusivity within our organization, as we work to combat the forces of white supremacy, patriarchy, colonial imperialism, and capitalism that shape our world.
