The Reproductive Village Cryobank

The Reproductive Village envisions a world where thriving, healthy Black families have deep connections with healthcare resources and healthcare education in their communities. They envision a world where Black parents who seek to expand their families have a variety of appealing options as they pursue this goal.

The Reproductive Village Cryobank (RVC) is a supportive, safe, and responsive community where Black donors and Black parents work together to expand and educate their families. Black parents are increasingly turning to cryobanks for fertility support, yet only 4% of sperm donors are Black. The roots of this disparity are historic and systemic and provide us with an opportunity to work towards a different future: one of awareness, education, and optimal resources.
