Different Avenues

Different Avenues strives to protect the health, rights and safety of girls and women of color who engage in alternative economies and activities and are affected by systemic and interpersonal violence and health disparities. By developing leaders and providing harm reduction services, Different Avenues seeks to strengthen and support girls and women of color who engage in survival strategies and build their power within the reproductive justice movement. With Third Wave’s support, Different Avenues will run focus groups for women and girls in juvenile detention using their curriculum “Don’t Fall for It,” which is designed to teach young women and girls about reproductive health and justice and how to resist violence and know their rights in the system.
