Whether the health of our climate, air and water, the guarantee of reproductive rights, or our interdependent relationship with the natural world, the Jacob and Terese Hershey Foundation supports those working boldly toward a healthy, harmonious world for people and nature.

Statement on Reproductive Rights and Justice

June 24, 2022 

The board and staff of the Jacob and Terese Hershey Foundation are deeply disappointed in the U.S. Supreme Court’s ruling overturning Roe v. Wade. This decision is devastating, and we recognize that in our state the implications will weigh most heavily on Texans of color and those with limited incomes. We are more committed than ever to investing in those working boldly toward reproductive rights and justice, and invite you to join us in supporting our partners advocating for a just and humane Texas:  

The ACLU of Texas
The Afiya Center
The Center for Reproductive Rights
The National Latina Institute for Reproductive Justice-Texas
Planned Parenthood Texas Votes
Texas Freedom Network
Texas Impact 

Our commitment is rooted in our values, and our determination is unwavering.
