Mission: The Emma Goldman Clinic is a not-for-profit independent organization founded in 1973 by a group of women driven by feminist ideals. We exist to empower women and men in all life stages through the provision of quality reproductive health care that includes abortion services, gynecology services, safer sex promotion, and active education. We promote respectful, client-centered and participatory health care through informed decision making, client rights, advocacy and expansion, and support of pregnancy choices.
We strive to provide an environment in which diversity is acknowledged and celebrated. We are actively committed to staff diversity in employment policies and practices. We strive to increase economic, geographic, structural, and language accessibility for the clients we serve through fundraising, outreach, and advocacy.
We offer non-judgmental, quality health care services. Our goals are inspired by our belief in the larger ideals of feminist philosophy: political, economic, and social equality.

Professional with expertise in this field
Emma Goldman has been a leader in the quest for reproductive rights for women for decades. Having seen generations of women realize the potential for self determination both as clients and staff, I can assure you that this organization has a crucial role in this process. As a training ground for future health providers, hundreds of physicians have benefited from the expertise of the clinical director and assurance has been made that the quality of medical care available to women is of the highest caliber. This mid-west treasure has the strong support of the community and is most deserving of any additional support you can provide. As a health care provider, an educator, a training ground and a positive experience for its customer, the clinic will continue to excel in its mission.
