our mission

National Advocates for Pregnant Women (NAPW), established as a 501(c)(3) organization in 2001, works to secure the human and civil rights, health and welfare of all women, focusing particularly on pregnant and parenting women, and those who are most vulnerable to state control and punishment - low income women, women of color, and drug-using women.
