Hello, We Are Tides
We are the first abortion fund in MA founded and led by Queer, Black, and Indigenous People.
Tides for Reproductive Freedom is dedicated to providing practical and financial support for people across race, gender, sexuality, spirituality, ethnicity, ability, and history seeking access to abortion services. Our goal is to fill the funding and practical support gaps across the state by working directly with frontline communities. As members of these communities, we find ourselves equipt to do the necessary work of centering and working with people from our communities, while also investing in their leadership.
We are committed to working strategically with our fellow Massachusetts abortion funds to meet our people where they are through sustainable system building to ensure equitable access to reproductive health, services, and justice.
We are looking for Board Members:
The Board of Directors is made up of Massachusetts residents and are responsible for the strategic visioning and governance of Tides with the support of the Co-Directors and staff. For the next two years the board will be focused on developing systems and processes; strategic visioning for 2025 and supporting the statewide community scan.
Additionally, the Board also has the following officer positions available:
Treasure - Informal or formal experience and/or interest in budgets, designing and implementing processes and procedures
Clerk - Informal or formal experience and/or interest in keeping records, compliance, facilitation, designing and implementing process and procedures.
Still curious about who we are?
