COLOR approaches reproductive health and rights from a holistic perspective, embracing the cultural values and history of the Latino community. COLOR believes that if the mind, body and spirit of a Latina are strong, she will be empowered to make healthy decisions concerning her body and, ultimately, her life. To explain the mysterious term 'reproductive health' COLOR adapted the following definition from the U.N. International Conference on Population Development

  • includes mind, body and spirit
  • right of Latinas to have a satisfying and safe sex life
  • capability to have children and the freedom to decide if, when and how often to do so
  • right to be informed and to have access to safe, effective, affordable methods of family planning of choice
  • right of access to culturally proficient health care services
  • freedom to have and take control of our bodies.

"African-American Women’s Maternal Health"
- Surveys have long since established disparities in maternal healthcare for African-American women - that they are three times more likely to die  than white women to die from pregnancy-related complications and that  their babies are half as likely to live out their first year. But the causes of this disparity are not fully understood, despite the existing data. A new study out of the University of Michigan is examining African-American women's maternal health, but from a variety of angles, including  socioeconomic disparities, bias and discrimination. An interdisciplinary approach to the problem may be the start of an effective solution. Read more here:

"Racial Disparities in Medicine Have Lethal Consequences" (December 2004) Advances in medicine happen every day, and these advances save lives. But a new study published in the American Journal of Public Health examines how these advances do not reach all populations equally, and mortality rates have decreased among white people at a greater rate than for African-Americans. The study’s conclusion: racial disparities in healthcare resulted in nearly 900,000 preventable deaths for African-Americans in the period between 1991-2001. According to one of the researchers, "five times as many lives can be saved by correcting the disparities ... than in developing new treatments."
