About the Plaintiffs
Alliance for Open Society International, Inc. (AOSI) is a U.S. public charity organized in 2003 under the laws of the State of Delaware. AOSI’s purposes include promoting the value of open, democratic societies, both domestically and internationally; and coordinating, administrating, and advising national and regional programs in Central Asia and elsewhere on a range of issues, including public health, education, and, more generally, development of civil society. AOSI also educates the public about issues concerning societies’ attempts to transform from totalitarian or authoritarian rule to democratic market economies.
AOSI works with the U.S. government on a variety of charitable projects and is active within the United States to address the specific challenges facing urban communities and centers within the United States. AOSI makes and receives grants to support and cooperates with other charitable organizations for the foregoing purposes.
InterAction is an alliance organization in Washington, D.C., of U.S.-based international organizations. Our members, more than 180 nongovernmental organizations (NGOs), work around the world. What unites us is a commitment to working with the world’s poor and vulnerable, and a belief that we can make the world a more peaceful, just and prosperous place—together.
InterAction serves as a convener, thought leader, and voice of our community. Because we want real, long-term change, we work smarter: We mobilize our members to think and act collectively, because we know more is possible that way. We also know that how we get there matters. So we set high standards. We insist on respecting human dignity. We work in partnerships.
Pathfinder believes that people everywhere have the right to live a healthy sexual and reproductive life. For more than 55 years, we have worked to expand access to quality sexual and reproductive health care to enable and empower individuals to make choices about their body and their future. At Pathfinder, we believe choice is everything. When people take charge of their life choices such as if or when and how often to have children, they gain confidence and strength. They can better pursue their education, contribute to the local economy, and engage in their communities.
