NARAL Pro-Choice Connecticut is proud to honor deserving members of the choice community with the Catherine Roraback Award.
The Catherine Roraback Awards are given to individuals and organizations that have demonstrated leadership, courage and activism in the struggle to protect privacy rights, the legal right to obtain an abortion, and access to reproductive health for all. The awards are given in honor of Catherine Roraback, the civil rights attorney who successfully argued before the US Supreme Court, in Griswold v. Connecticut, that the right of married couples to obtain contraception is protected under the privacy rights established in the Constitution.
Catherine Roraback Awards have been presented for legislative leadership; community service, activism, and commitment to the delivery of reproductive health services; and to those who volunteer to support the work of the pro-choice movement.
