Colorado has seen a historic drop in the pregnancy rate among teens and poor women, thanks to a pioneering family planning program providing long-acting birth control for free. In a new video from Women at the Center, Roger-Mark De Souza explains why groundbreaking programs like the Colorado Family Planning Initiative matter to the global push for women's empowerment and environmental conservation efforts. "When these women are empowered through having access to family planning, you find that they become even better environmental stewards, they are able to engage in economic activities, and this empowerment helps address inequities in their society," says De Souza. "Family planning and reproductive health services address these three dimensions of sustainability: equity, economic empowerment, and the environment."
