Princeton Students for Reproductive Justice (PSRJ) exists to educate the university community about reproductive health and rights, to translate increased awareness into pro-choice activism on campus, and to serve as a coalition partner to state, national, and international reproductive rights efforts.
PSRJ believes in the fundamental right of every individual to manage his or her fertility. PSRJ supports full access to comprehensive reproductive and complementary health care services in settings that preserve and protect the essential privacy and rights of each individual; advocates public policies that guarantee these rights and ensure access to such services; and supports access to medically accurate educational programs that enhance understanding of human sexuality.
We are a group of passionate activist students. PSRJ is an ODUS (Office of the Dean of Undergraduate Students) student organization at Princeton University. Our group is primarily undergraduates, but graduate students are welcome to join as well!
Princeton Students for Reproductive Justice is dedicated to sex positivity, sexual and reproductive health education, and pro-choice politics. Our activities center around these main focuses. We hold a variety of events throughout the school year, aimed at engaging the wider campus community in active education. We also undertake a number of initiatives to improve the campus community. These have included, just in the short time since our founding: a campaign to expand access to emergency contraception on campus, fueled by results of a campus-wide survey for which we received almost 200 responses; production of a comprehensive guide to the sexual and reproductive health services at University Health Services, establishment of a partnership to put condoms in all eating clubs, and many more in the works! We also engage in advocacy at the state and federal level. To learn more about the events we’ve put on in the past, and see what’s coming up, check out the “Events” section!
PSRJ was founded by Jessica Quinter, Alice Longenbach, and Katie Cion, in 2016. They saw a clear gap in the campus community--though there were two active pro-life groups on campus, there was yet no organized response from the other side. Motivated by the desire to bring pro-choice activism to campus, PSRJ became an officially recognized group in September of that year. Since then, we’ve continued to grow in membership as well as expanded our campus partnerships.
