Programs: NAPW is actively involved in ongoing court challenges to punitive drug and reproductive health policies and provides litigation support in cases across the country. NAPW engages in local and national organizing and public education efforts among the diverse communities that are stakeholders in these issues, including the women and families directly affected by punitive policies, as well as the public health and policy leaders who can ensure that the problems of pregnancy and drug use are dealt with through the public health system rather than the criminal justice system. NAPW uses these opportunities to challenge the myths regarding drug-using women, and provides a medical, legal, and political analysis of why punitive approaches fail everyone.

Mission:
NAPW works to achieve a world in which women enjoy full personhood and where neither pregnancy nor drug use serve as an excuse to dehumanize and punish select groups of people. NAPW''s mission is to secure the human and civil rights, health, and welfare of pregnant and parenting women while protecting children from punitive and misguided state policies. We advocate on behalf of all women, especially those who are most marginalized: women of color, low-income women, and women who use drugs.
