Venture Café Statement on Reproductive Rights

July 1, 2022

Venture Cafe Global Institute and its network of cafés are deeply concerned by the Supreme Court’s decision to overturn Roe v Wade – concerned for those who have lost access to safe healthcare, concerned for our teams in the US who are directly impacted, and concerned for society as a result of the precedent this decision sets.

Venture Cafe Global Institute is committed to creating an environment where our communities feel safe and supported in the personal choices they make for themselves and their families. While we deeply appreciate the spectrum of personal views on this topic, we believe that safe healthcare is a human right and that everyone should be empowered to make their own choices.

In addition to our existing wellbeing offerings for our teams, we’re covering the cost of travel and accommodation for US based Venturers and their chosen support person to access abortion care in a state where it is not restricted or banned.

We’ll continue to do everything we can to best support our team in accessing their right to healthcare in the US and around the world.
