Carolina Abortion Fund

Reproductive Justice Internship

Carolina Abortion Fund (CAF) is a 501-c3 nonprofit working towards liberated abortion access. CAF operates a volunteer helpline that provides financial assistance and resource referrals to North Carolinians who want to terminate a pregnancy but lack the full funds to do so safely. We believe that income should not limit a person’s ability to make reproductive decisions. CAF seeks to contextualize safe, accessible, and on demand abortion care within larger reproductive justice framework.
