The Black Feminist Reproductive Justice, Equity & HIV/AIDS Activism (BREHA) Lab is an interdisciplinary collective that foregrounds the experiences, labor, and political visions of Afro-diasporic girls, women, and gender diverse people in our shared and divergent struggles against reproductive injustice. Our lab’s primary goal is to use our research, community partnerships and multimedia advocacy to uplift the efforts and capacity of Black communities to combat a range of reproductive violences across structural, state, and scientific domains, such as HIV/AIDS stigma, obstetric racism, and inaccessible or withheld care. BREHA is invested in collaborative study that honors the transnational work of our comrades and applies our learning in the service of movement building and collective action.

The BREHA Lab is led by Jallicia Jolly, Postdoctoral Fellow and Incoming Assistant Professor of American Studies and of Black Studies at Amherst College, in collaboration with four inaugural student members, Ash Smith '22, Talia Ward '23, Fiona Yohannes '25, and Isabella Ahmad (of Mount Holyoke College).
