Impact

NPCVF's impact:

 

  • Policy Advocacy and Education: We advocate before policymakers in Richmond to encourage them to reject anti-choice attacks and to expand access to legal abortion, birth control, reproductive health care, and sex education. Recently, this has included our efforts to repeal laws that restrict abortion access in Virginia; to expand Medicaid to close the health coverage gap for 400,000 Virginians; and to reinstate programs that provide family planning and prenatal/maternity care to low-income families. In 2015, we co-founded the Virginia Women’s Equality Coalition to advocate for a comprehensive policy agenda that includes key reproductive rights goals as well as other areas of women’s rights, equality, and economic security.
  • Grassroots Community Outreach: In 2014, we brought on two new organizers to conduct outreach, education, and engagement events. Our organizing team is expanding the visibility of our issue in communities, through tabling, presentations, and other outreach to educate the public about the current status of reproductive rights in Virginia and the threats and opportunities we are facing. Through their outreach, we have informed and engaged over 2,000 new activists from all across Virginia in the past year and expanded our network of community leaders and partners.
  • Protecting Access to Abortion Care: Since 2011, NARAL Pro-Choice Virginia Foundation has been a leader in the fight to ensure regulations on Virginia's women's health centers that provide first-trimester abortion will be based on medical evidence and public health, not on an agenda to make it as difficult as possible for clinics to remain open. In 2014, Governor McAuliffe initiated a regulatory review of these targeted regulations on abortion providers (TRAP) that has given us an opportunity to push for changes to the regulations that will protect access to high-quality abortion care throughout Virginia.

 

Needs
  • Monetary Support: Contributions to NPCVF enable us to continue educating policymakers, the media, and the public about reproductive rights and health care issues in Virginia and advocating for positive policy changes in our state. Additional support would help us further expand our organizing team’s reach across the state to engage, inform, and mobilize more Virginians to take action for reproductive rights and health care access.
  • Volunteers: NPCVF’s impact is made possible by our network of grassroots activists and volunteer leaders across the state. We are looking for volunteers to help us advocate with policymakers, attend public hearings and meetings, conduct outreach events, educate their peers, and more. Information is available at http://www.naralva.org/get-involved/
  • Board Members: We are looking for additional members of our working volunteer board, particularly those with interest or experience in nonprofit management, issue advocacy and activism, community organizing, and reproductive rights and health care policy. Contact info@naralva.org for more information on board responsibilities and opportunities.
Background

NARAL Pro-Choice Virginia Foundation was founded in 2005 as a sister 501(c)(3) organization to NARAL Pro-Choice Virginia, which is a 501(c)(4) advocacy organization. We are a state affiliate of NARAL Pro-Choice America, a national organization that focuses primarily on national/federal-level reproductive rights and health care issues, while our organization focuses on the state and local level. In the past decade, NPCVF has grown considerably and established itself as a leader in policy advocacy, public education, and organizing on reproductive rights in Virginia. NPCVF and its sister organization work out of a Pro-Choice Action Center main office in Alexandria, VA, and a Policy and Government Affairs office in Richmond, VA. We also have remote community organizers who are based in outer Northern Virginia, Hampton Roads, and Petersburg, VA, respectively, and a network of campus interns based on various college and university campuses across Virginia. As a grassroots organization, NPCVF’s work is strongly tied to its network of hundreds of grassroots activists and volunteer leaders, or “Choice Ambassadors,” across the state.

Executive Director
Executive Director Ms. Tarina D. Keene MPA
Experience Tarina Keene took the helm of NARAL Pro-Choice Virginia in January 2008 as the organization's executive director.

Tarina led the charge on the now infamous mandatory ultrasound bill passed by the Virginia General Assembly in February 2012. Despite the legislation passing, Tarina was responsible for introducing the legislature to the "transvaginal” ultrasound that gained international media scrutiny and galvanized thousands of Virginians to protest against the bill in Richmond during the legislative session. Tarina was quoted more than 100 times in the media including the New York Times, The Week Magazine, L.A. Times, Chicago Tribune, The Guardian (UK), and the Washington Post.

Tarina is also the founder and chair of the Virginia Coalition to Protect Women’s Health which came together in March 2011 after the General Assembly passed a law regulating abortion providers as hospitals. She successfully recruited more than a dozen state and national organizations and abortion providers to work together to mitigate the regulations. Tarina also appeared live twice on MSNBC’s The Rachel Maddow Show to discuss the impact on women’s access to reproductive healthcare if a majority of the state’s women’s healthcare providers are forced to cease offering services especially in rural and low-income areas.

In 2009, Tarina was appointed to the Alexandria City Commission on Women and currently serves as 1st Vice Chair. She served as Virginia NOW President from 2004-2006. She is also a 2006 graduate of the University of Virginia’s prestigious Sorensen Institute for Political Leadership. Tarina began her career in broadcast news as an on-air reporter and newscast producer. Tarina also completed the Appalachian Trail in 1999, walking nearly 2,200 miles from Georgia to Maine.  She has a B.A. in Media Studies and a B.A. in Political Science from Radford University and a Master’s of Public Administration and Nonprofit Management from Old Dominion University.

Description We inform policymakers, the media, and the public about the state of reproductive rights in Virginia and about the negative impact of anti-choice policies restrict access to safe, legal abortion care and other reproductive health services. We advocate before policymakers in Richmond to encourage them to reject anti-choice attacks and to expand access to legal abortion, birth control, reproductive health care, and sex education.
Description NARAL Pro-Choice Virginia Foundation has been a leader in the fight to ensure regulations on Virginia's women's health centers that provide abortion will be based on medical evidence and public health, not on an agenda to make it as difficult as possible for clinics to remain open. We work with other women's rights and health advocates and health care professionals to oppose targeted regulation of abortion providers (TRAP) as leaders of the Virginia Coalition to Protect Women's Health.
Description We're dedicated to ensuring that Virginians can know where to access medically-accurate, supportive information and resources regarding their full range of reproductive decisions and options, and to exposing so-called "crisis pregnancy centers" that deceptively promote an anti-choice agenda rather than offering accurate information and real support for all options for women experiencing unintended pregnancy.
Description Our grassroots organizers are building connections in Virginia communities and engaging a broad base of women and men to become informed, empowered advocates for Virginians' reproductive rights and health care access. They are expanding the visibility of our issue in communities, through tabling, presentations, and other outreach to educate the public about the current status of reproductive rights in Virginia and the threats and opportunities we are facing. We are developing a grassroots network of pro-choice leaders across the state who help spread our messages even further and engage their peers in taking action.
Description We engage students at Virginia colleges and universities in activism and advocacy for reproductive rights and health care access, both through participating in our statewide activities and by pursuing local campaigns on their own campus.
